The spectacular Whittinghame Yew – join us on 4th May to visit it!

One of the highlights of the East Lothian volunteer gathering on 4th May is a visit to see the Whittinghame yew.  This incredible cathedral of a tree is in private land and we are very lucky to have gained permission to go and see it. 


We will be joined by famous arboriculturalist, Donald Rodger, who will tell us about the tree.  You might know Donald as the author of the Heritage Trees of Scotland book.


Find out more and book here on our website.

    What a coup to not only get access to the yew – which is on privately owned ground – but to get Donald’s time too! The yew layers so far, visitors have to crawl through tunnels created by the layering branches to get any where near the central trunk. An adventure and a treat. Nice.
