The Ancient Tree Inventory (ATI), a citizen science project that aims to map ancient, veteran and notable trees around the UK.
The project is a partnership between the Woodland Trust, the Tree Register and The Ancient Tree Forum and has been recording special trees for over 16 years. In this time we have mapped over 180,000 trees, with more being added every day. The ATI invites everyone to help map old trees as anyone is able to submit a tree to the project's interactive map.

In this talk, the Woodland Trust's Citizen Science Officer for the ATI - Tom Reed - will be delivering a presentation that explains how you can recognise an ancient / veteran tree and will cover all the essentials of recording so that you can begin adding trees in your local area to the project's database. We will also look at some examples of trees that have already been recorded and give some tips on where you might be more likely to find these special trees so that you can help us to map any that haven't been recorded.

Please visit the projects website to find out more about the ATI prior to the talk, a link can be found here.

This event is one of a series BIS are running to promote the wildlife that makes its home within the Brecon Beacons National Park (BBNP) and is thanks to funding from the Brecon Beacons National Park and CLIF bar. Although its focus is on the BBNP and promoting wildlife to individuals and communities within the Park the topics covered will be equally valid across Wales and the UK.

This is a free event and is open to all.
