Wildlife Trust's guide to historic trees in Bristol
ANCIENT trees on the Avon Wildlife Trust’s nature reserves feature in a new historic guide to woodlands across the UK.
Great Places to See Ancient and Unusual Trees draws attention to the woodlands which have been around longer than the British Empire.
Among the trees featured are a field of maple in Willsbridge Valley on the outskirts of Bristol and the Folly Oak at Folly Farm Centre, near Bishop Sutton.
The Folly Oak is more than 400 years old, and is at the heart of the Trust's 250-acre nature reserve, with views onto Chew Valley Lake and the Mendip Hills, and next to its education and conference centre.

Joe Middleton, Avon Wildlife Trust's Reserves Manager, said: “Trees that have lived for hundreds of years are particularly special as they provide a unique and highly valuable habitat for a wide array of wildlife.
“Thousands of species live in the fissures, cracks, hollows, cavities, dead wood and loose bark provided by ancient trees.
“Many of the birds, insects and mammals that we can see today in our ancient woodlands are not found anywhere else.
“They owe their livelihood to those first trees setting their deep roots in the ground centuries ago, preparing for endless years of service to the natural environment. For this reason.
“The Wildlife Trusts endeavour to prolong the lives of these trees even further and hope to protect them for many generations to come.”
