Overview

With an introductory talk, guests will learn about ancient trees and their special value to our culture, landscape and biodiversity before investigating the ancient landscape of Boconnoc. Explore the grounds, deer park, wood pasture and woodland to gain an insight into the amazing wildlife that lives on the estate, as well as learning how we age trees and the integral part that trees have played within communities at Boconnoc throughout history. Guests will visit some of the oldest trees on the estate where our guide will measure and estimate the age of the trees. We will explore their own habitats and the wildlife they support. During the walk you will have time to ask questions, photograph and measure some trees and find out why Oliver Rackham said, “one 500-year-old oak is more valuable to biodiversity than 10,000 100-year-old oaks!”
