Old maps are helping with ancient tree hunt

Historical maps are helping to find and protect ancient trees in Dorset.

The evocative maps, showing details from towns, villages and countryside from 1843-1893, have been added to the Ancient Tree Hunt website run by the Woodland Trust.

One of Dorset's most remarkable old trees is the Waterman's oak, a mile south west of Wimborne, with a girth of 5.5 metres.
