Futures Forum: Arboretum: Tree Survey: training session for supervisors: Thursday 28th November
Every tree in the Sid valley is potentially an Arboretum Tree. We have started to log some of the more interesting trees in our database but are always looking for suggestions for more trees, and for more information about the trees we have already logged. If you have any new information for us, please get in touch.
The current list of trees can be seen in the Tree List and their locations can be found on the Tree Map
We are also interested in the general well-being of all the trees in the valley, and in 2014 will commence a statistical sample tree survey in order to get a base-line to see how the valley as a whole is doing in future years. The sample plots can be seen on the Survey Plots map
If you are able to help, contact us for a login identity, and you will then be able to enter data about the trees you know.

And it has started training young people to help with the survey, as reported in the Herald:
Sidmouth students trained to ID trees for survey
Sidmouth Arboretum – the country’s first civic arboretum – is set to achieve another first as it measures the benefits of trees in the Sid Valley. The organisation is sending out more than 200 letters across the town council’s jurisdiction to request access for data collection on public and private land.
