Would you like to know the common tree species around Nene Park?
As part of the Moments with Trees project (April 2017-March 2019), teams of corporate volunteers received tree identification and disease training then targeted areas of woodland to identify and count trees. This is the first time the diversity and abundance of tree species has been recorded at Nene Park.
We hope this work will educate our Volunteers and Visitors about tree species and woodland diversity. We feel this is very important in connecting people to nature. People tend to ignore the unfamiliar and this work aims to make the unfamiliar familiar, so visitors can appreciate our natural heritage. You can visit these areas and look for the common species.
This information will help inform woodland management plans and is a historical record of the tree species in Nene Park in 2017-2018. Due to climate change and tree disease, the Park may look very different in 100-200 years’ time. We now have a record to compare.
Take a look at the results of our tree species surveys below and use them to identify trees when you're out and about in the Park. You can download surveys for different areas of the Park.
Nene Park’s Moments with Trees (April 2017 - March 2019) was an award winning project funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. The project celebrated and raised the profile of trees through a variety of events and activities.
