And if you don’t have an iPhone, stay tuned for our new National Register of Significant Trees website coming in July!
Around the country, dedicated volunteers are putting the final touches to the data set for thousands of significant trees scattered right across Australia. In July, the National Trusts of Australia Register of Significant Trees will be formally launched. The new website will bring together National Trust tree classifications from around the country for the first time. It also has an online nomination form available so that you can nominate your own favourite tree if it’s not already classified. Trees are classified if they are of Regional significance or above, and meet one of the criteria for scientific, social, historic or aesthetic significance. The site at http://www.trusttrees.org.au is currently a prototype, but we look forward to sharing the national data set with you very soon!
