Sometimes you just can't see the wood for the trees

Open Street Map, and its spin-offs are not the only mapping initiatives that are using volunteers to put mapping data into the public domain. The woodland trust is running an Ancient Tree Hunt which aims to "find and map all the old, fat trees across the UK".

Their interactive map is here, they have forms where you can record an ancient tree, and submit it for verification and adding to the map.

It looks as though there are a heck of a lot of ancient trees out there that need a hug.
