The survey has now closed, but you can still use our tree identification resources.
Thank you to everyone who took part.
Most of the trees growing in our towns and cities are found in private gardens and information on their distribution is very limited. With your help we are finding out what species are growing where in the UK.
The information you have collected will contribute to our understanding of the UK's trees and provide a baseline against which future changes can be measured, so it will be useful for generations to come.
Identify your trees with the help of our interactive key, factsheets on the most common UK trees, and other guidance.
See the results so far and find out what they mean from our scientists.
School pupils can take part in the urban tree survey with these curriculum-linked learning resources aimed at Key Stage 2 (ages 7–11)
Find out about the survey and discover how to identify trees with the help of botanist and tree expert Dr Bob Press in this video.
If you have a question about trees, or want some help identifying a particular tree, the Museum experts and enthusiasts in our Tree ID forum could help you.
