Which trees are these?

Tree bark

Seen an unusual tree and want to know what it is? Upload a photograph and our scientists will try and identify it for you. You can also ask questions about trees, or get help identifying a particular species. Whatever your query, our scientists and the community will try to help you.

The UK's tree population is constantly changing. Non-native species are being introduced, while climate changing and expanding residential areas are affecting the types of trees that can grow. To help improve our understanding of the UK population we are conducting an urban tree survey.
