Identify a tree today. Take part in the urban tree survey and tell us about the trees in your streets, parks and especially in your gardens.
Please enter your results before 30 January 2015, when the survey closes.
Most of the trees growing in our towns and cities are found in private gardens and information on their distribution is very limited. We need your help to find out what species are growing where in the UK.
The information you collect will contribute to our understanding of the UK's trees and provide a baseline against which future changes can be measured, so it will be useful for generations to come.
Find out more about the survey and why it is important. All the tools you need to take part and put your trees on the map are here.
Identify your trees with the help of our interactive key, factsheets on the most common UK trees, and other guidance.
See the results so far and find out what they mean from our scientists.
School pupils can take part in the urban tree survey with these curriculum-linked learning resources aimed at Key Stage 2 (ages 7–11)
Find out about the survey and discover how to identify trees with the help of botanist and tree expert Dr Bob Press in this video.
