The term veteran tree is one that is not capable of precise definition, but it encompasses trees defined by three guiding principles:
• trees of interest biologically, aesthetically or culturally because of their age
• trees in the ancient stage of their life
• trees that are old relative to others of the same species
The ecological value of veteran trees is largely immeasurable, and any associated management must be carefully considered. We have extensive experience in the management of veteran trees across a range of sites and can advise on appropriate management strategies to ensure these valuable trees are retained.
