Special trees and woods are found throughout the Chilterns - on village greens, local parks and commons and in the fields, hedges and woodlands of the wider countryside.
The Special Trees and Woods Project ran for four and a half years. During this time a team of volunteers identified and recorded the special trees and woods in the Chilterns Natural Area, which includes all the AONB. The volunteers discovered where the trees are and researched the stories and social history behind them which make them special.
Discover these special trees and woods and the stories behind them by ticking the categories to the right of the map and clicking on the icons that appear.
The Project Archive page contains some brief information on what makes a tree or wood special and how the volunteers did their research. There is also information on how to measure trees.
