Group Description

Wokingham District Veteran Tree Association

The WDVTA was launched in January 2007 to help ensure that veteran and other significant trees in and around the district of Wokingham were properly identified, protected and managed, and to increase public awareness of their importance. Currently we have over 230 members. The Association supports the Wokingham District Veteran Tree Survey, which aims to map veteran and significant trees in the Wokingham area. Members also organise tree-related talks, walks, visits and other events to which all are welcome. We believe that veteran trees are important, remarkable and beautiful. They support a rich variety of wildlife (lichens, mosses, invertebrates, birds and small mammals); they are an irreplaceable gene pool; and they are of historic significance, being living indicators of past land use. In 2010 the WDVTA broadened its objectives to include concern for all trees, not just veterans, and in 2011 we joined the Tree Warden Scheme. WDVTA members can now become Tree Wardens if they wish.
