For non members

  • Go To: Native Species Champion Database
    Here non members can view a simple database of native tree species as listed below.
    This database includes the largest, tallest and some other exceptional specimens of trees native to the British Isles.

  • A key to common names can be found at the end of this page.

  • Girth measurements were recorded at 1.5m above ground unless shown as otherwise in the @ column.

  • Please note that many of these trees are growing on private property and permission must be sought from the owners before visiting.
    For further details please contact the Tree Register.

  • The Tree Register endeavours to keep these records as up to date as possible.
    We rely on reports from local people and volunteer measurers as to the health and condition of these trees.

  • We would like to hear from anyone who knows of trees bigger than those listed or who can report on the death or loss of any tree listed.

Please use the Online Measuring Form to report a potential champion tree or if you wish to confirm a trees status, nationally or locally.
The tree in your garden may be more special than you think.
