WDVTA tree database
The Tree Map
The 5000th tree in the database
English Oak, Bearwood Recreation Ground
The WDVTA maintains a database of veteran and significant trees in the Wokingham area. These are surveyed by a team of trained volunteers who record details of each tree such as the location, species, size, general condition and whether the tree provides a habitat for wildlife, such as bats. The results of the survey can be seen on the WDVTS map. Using this map you can see the locations of all the surveyed trees in the district or just those in a particular parish. By clicking on one of the pins on the map you can see brief details of the tree, with links to the full record and all associated photographs.
