Ancient Tree Inventory: new website coming soon
A brand new Ancient Tree Inventory (ATI) website has been developed and will launch later this month.
The old (ancient-tree-hunt.org.uk) website has been closed to allow us to prepare and move the data to the new website.
Why the new site?
The old website did a brilliant job, helping us to record 170,000 of the most important trees in the UK. But at over ten years old the site wasn’t compatible with the devices we use now.
The new website gives us a stable platform. It’s mobile friendly so you can record in the field. And as a verifier you’ll be able to choose the distance you’re willing to travel, rather than being allocated a county.
If you’re a verifier you should have recently received an email from me with more details about the launch.
Keep an eye on Whittle where I’ll be posting more information as the launch approaches.
Not a verifier and want to find out more?
The ATI is a database of ancient, veteran and notable trees recorded around the UK and verified by some very knowledgeable and enthusiastic volunteers.
It’s a fantastic way to celebrate our gnarliest trees, plus its crucial tool used by planners, developers and ecologists to identify the oldest and most important trees across the UK.
Anyone can get involved with the ATI. We’ll be launching the new site later this month so keep checking Whittle and get recording.
