Managing Veteran Trees Course

The Treelife team attended Floral Locale's Managing Veteran Trees course held at Burnham Beeches.

Ancient and veteran trees are irreplaceable parts of our living heritage and it is important to care and manage them to ensure their longeverty and to maintain the value associated with them. 

Some trees are of particular importance in terms of the diversity of wildlife that they support. Trees that possess characteristics such as crown retrenchment (the crown dying back and becoming more compact), hollow trunks, water pools, large quantities of deadwood and crevices in the bark are generally referred to as ‘Veteran’. Veteran trees are a precious part of our heritage that need care and attention in order to survive into the future.

The course included a trip out to Burnham Beeches taking a detailed look at their veteran and ancient tree management.
