This is the world’s leading online resource about British trees. Explore our A-Z Tree Guide to learn about, appreciate and identify over 70 tree and shrub species found in the British Isles.
The guide includes all native (naturally arrived) as well as common non-native (introduced by people) trees found in the UK. We hope you find this free online resource useful.

Bill Unsworth created the first British Trees website, which he wanted to be the definitive guide to British Trees. In 2004, he kindly donated this website to the Woodland Trust, the UK’s leading woodland conservation charity. Since then, the Trust has developed and expanded upon Bill’s original website and now re-launched it, as an even bigger and better resource about British Trees.
We are most grateful to our volunteers Andy Chapman and Graham Livermore who helped with the tree research and webpage creation, respectively.
We also extend our thanks to Collins who have generously supplied illustrations from their 'Tree Guide' book to accompany the species entries on the website.
