The Woodland Trusts Royal Tree Records Found

The Woodland Trust's uncovered a forgotten treasure, the Royal Record of King George VI’s Coronation. This incredible record details all the tree planting undertaken by thousands of schools, parishes, organisations and homeowners in 1936/7, in gardens, parks and public spaces, and even names the individuals across the UK and the world who planted the trees. We have taken on the painstaking challenge of digitising the 1937 Royal Record. It is now available online for the very first time for you to search the records and locate trees planted near them, find out if relatives or neighbours planted trees. Click here to search the records - simply choose the layer Environmental Records, then Veteran Trees.

Dorset Wildlife Trust would  love your help to see if the trees are still there! We would be really grateful if you could visit an area close to you and survey the trees with the attached form below.
