Scadbury Park Nature Reserve in Chislehurst, Bromley covers 140 hectares and includes areas of Semi-Ancient Natural Woodland dating back to at least the 12th Century. Within the woodlands are 100+ documented and recorded Ancient and Veteran trees. These trees are vital sources of biodiversity and have a rich history, with some as old as 500 years.
idverde supported the Friends of Scadbury Park in compiling the Scadbury Tree Trail, a guided walk leaflet covering 20 notable trees on the site with information on their history and biodiversity. As well as being a beneficial resource for visitors, the leaflet also acts as a stand-in for a guided tour originally proposed for 2020, but which had to be postponed due to Covid.
idverde’s Senior Ranger identified 20 suitable trees along a circular walk route and wrote a guided walk. The Friends of Scadbury created the layout of the leaflet and funded the printing of 500 initial copies which have been supplied to visitors on demand and will be distributed in future via an installed leaflet dispenser.
Some of the trees on the walking route are locally well known and points of interest in the woods. The leaflet will help new visitors to discover them and also raise the profile of ancient and veteran trees and their importance to biodiversity, and potentially improve public support for future works to maintain them. Future plans include essential infrastructure and arboricultural works to these trees to assure their longevity and improved visitor knowledge will reduce negative reactions.
The tree trail leaflet can be downloaded from the Friends of Scadbury Park’s website.
