Reason for nomination:

  • Gilwell Park has a long history traceable back over 600 years. Today, it forms the focus for the Scout Association as its Head Quarters. A walk around the site reveals the layers of its past as shown by its trees. Today, a very significant population of veteran trees still remains with over 30 ancient and veteran trees, many old pollards, standing within the private grounds.

Remarks & Tree condition:

  • Giant tree with a huge bolling. Its girth does not reflect this. This tree is not a nomination, but has been recorded as part of the Epping Forest Veteran tree survey - Contact us if you are interested in getting involved.
