With names like Billy Wilkins, the Posy Tree and Judge Wyndham’s Oak, Dorset’s ancient trees are amongst its most precious living treasures. At least two pre-date Christianity, one is the widest oak in the country. The Martyrs’ Tree has been named one of Britain’s ‘top ten’ trees.
Today Dorset’s veteran trees support a rich and often internationally rare wildlife, and are at last being recognised as living icons of national importance.
