Town and country

Epping Forest District Council, Countrycare and Local Heritage Initiative is working to help support the growing demand for care and attention to our valuable favourite trees within the Epping District.

Is there a tree that you think is really special and that makes life just that bit better? Would you like to tell us why?

We know the trees work very hard for us – for our health, our wellbeing, for biodiversity and for the appearance of our towns, villages and countryside. But trees also matter to us for more personal reasons. It may be because of some historical or family connection, their location, or their size or appearance. Whatever the reason, if you would like to share it with others then the 50 Favourite Trees Project is designed to help you share your feelings about your favourite tree.
