Cornwall Ancient Tree Forum

The Ancient Tree Forum (ATF) and the Woodland Trust work together to promote the conservation of ancient trees.
The Ancient Tree Forum was founded in 1993 by a group of people who had come together to discuss the management of ancient trees. It was subsequently one of the key partners in English Nature’s Veteran Trees Initiative. Cornwall’s Great Tree Hunt is part of the three-year ‘Great Trees Project’ to safeguard the future of Cornwall’s ancient and significant trees and anyone can get involved.
