Surveying trees at Harcourt Arboretum

After a race through test on 30 top British native trees we headed out into glorious May sunshine to practice our tree surveying at the beautiful Harcourt Arboretum. Following a tour of the car park area with Teach pointing out what to look for and how best to evaluate each specimen the idea of surveying sites and the trees upon them a lot less daunting. I must admit it helps to be fairly familiar with the species and so have an idea about it's habit and likely age but with a good Collins book no doubt gaps can be filled.

Some fabulous Mature specimens at Harcourt were recorded as we went around individually making our own first tree surveys.
