Help Map our Ancient Trees
Join this pioneering volunteer-led project to record every single ancient and veteran tree in the Lost Woods area.
Ancient trees are irreplaceable: each one acts as its own ecosystem, providing a home for a wide variety of wildlife, plants and fungi. But despite their value in supporting biodiversity and storing carbon, our oldest trees are vulnerable and many are not legally protected, leaving them at risk from development.
Across the country and in Sussex, we do not yet know where all our ancient trees are located – or which trees are facing threats. The Lost Woods team is aiming to map every single ancient and veteran tree in the project area to help protect these living legends for future generations.
