Mapping Bristol’s trees

Our sister site, Trees of Bristol provides an interactive guide to Bristol’s remarkable tree collections. It uses data gathered from multiple sources, including:

There are several ways to locate a tree or a tree collection:

  • Select Sites to view trees by the place where they grow.
  • Select Site Categories to view trees in a park, open space, street or by another category.
  • Select Organisations to view a list of contributing organisations and the trees they care for.
  • Select Species to find all trees for a given species or for more information on the species itself.
  • Select Collections to find trees that belong a specific collection which is not based on either a location or an organisation.
  • Use Search to find trees by collection or their Latin or common names. There are other search options including a free-text search. Trees can also be found by their proximity to a selected location.

Once you have found the sort of trees you are looking for, you can then select any tree from the the list shown or from the tree map presented and view more information about that tree.

If you have a GPS-enabled android phone with Chrome or Firefox installed or an iPhone, then try out this location-aware page on your phone to help you locate and identify our trees whilst on the move. You can save the link to your Home page for later use.

If you have any queries or comments about the project, or if you would like to volunteer to help or have a tree collection that you would like to share included, please get in touch via our Contact page or by emailing us at
The Forum would like to acknowledge all those who have shared their data and their time with us for their generous help, support and encouragement. Without it, this project would not have been possible.
This project is the work of Chris Wallace and Mark Ashdown, both members of the Bristol Tree Forum.
