Join us at Wokingham Library on Thursday 19 June for a talk from Wokingham District Veteran Tree Association (WDVTA).


WDVTA is a voluntary organisation that surveys and records veteran and notable trees across the borough as well as working as local Tree Wardens.  To date their survey has recorded and mapped over 7500 veteran and notable trees. The Woodland Trust have described WDVTA as ‘a brilliant example of how local groups can make a real impact for projects like the ancient tree inventory’.


In this talk, WDVTA chairperson Alison Griffin, will describe the Association’s work and findings: “Surveying the veteran trees across the Borough has been a valuable activity.  We have learned about our trees, history, land usage and biodiversity.  Our data is used by residents and councils and has contributed to national records of significant trees. This is especially important at this time of unprecedented environmental pressure in Wokingham.”


This illustrated talk will take place in the library at a cost of £3. Anyone wishing to book a place should call the library on (0118) 978 1368.
