The terms ‘Ancient’ or ‘Veteran’ tree are used to describe those trees that are bigger, older and more important for biodiversity than any other. Technically an ‘Ancient Tree’ refers to trees in the ancient or third and final stage of their life. A veteran tree is one that is in its second or mature stage. There is a further classification for ‘notable’ trees, which are those that are particularly culturally or aesthetically important, or are the ancient trees of the future.
The UK is particularly rich in terms of its ancient tree population when compared to the rest of the world...are we not lucky?
