BBC film the judging of the 50 favourite trees

With the support of The Local Heritage Initiative this project began in the summer of 2006. The search was on for the public of Epping Forest District Parishes to find their favourite trees.

With more than 200 trees being nominated and added to this web site the project is a great success. So much so that it gained the attention of the BBC "Trees that made Britain" TV series. In March of 2007 Tony Kirkham and Jon Hammond of Kew Gardens came to Epping to form part of the judging panel to choose and film the winning trees as part of their TV series.This will be shown on BBC 2 on Friday 16th May 2008 at 7.30pm.

Now with the help of GreenArc the veteran tree surveys have continued to grow with over 2,000 trees now recorded and available to see on this site.
