Plants & Trees
We've re-started a Brent Island Tree Survey which was initially carried out in the early years of the Trust. We're using a standardised developed by The Tree Register www.treeregister.org. The aim of the survey is to monitor the progress (or decline) and general health of trees on The Island or between the river and the leat. To make the project manageable we're only recording trees with a girth of greater than 1m and the data is for our own use only - we're not, at this stage, submitting it to The Tree Register..
This pdf document gives some background to The Tree Register and also the measurement methodology we're using.
This is the form we're using to record out trees.
This is the form we're using to record our trees.
Below is a map of The Island showing the locations of the trees we're recorded so far. Also below is a table summarising the records so far - note that we still have some trees to measure. You can also download the full data here in xlsx format.
