The Dendrologist was a quarterly publication (ISSN 0966-9124) which had served tree enthusiasts although it had no viewpoints of its own, as the purpose of the volunteers who researched, wrote and produced this quarterly newsletter for over 30 years, was to support all those who shared their interest in trees and woodlands. On 1st February 2013 the cessation of this publication, The Dendrologist, was announced in a final circulation. Refunds were offered for any unexpired portion of subscriptions to all subscribers and those paying by Standing Orders were asked to immediately cancel them. This was important because as made clear that from 1st March 2013 all sums in the account would be deemed donated for the final projects of The Dendrologist. These projects being that of maintaining this website and that of a final publication to be published in 2014 for which many subscribers converted the remaining part of their subscriptions by additional sums in prepayment to order this.

As anticipated the final publication, 'A Dendrologist's Handbook' (ISBN 9525842 3 9) in an A4 format of 70,000 words has now been published. It provides practical botanical information, a history of trees in Britain including the introduction of those brought in by plant hunters and discussion of a number of topics for those interested in Britain's treescapes. It also reproduces a number of significant articles of practical importance from the last two decades. To order this publication; Send a cheque for 10.50, payable to The Dendrologist at the address above.

This website will continue in the hope of encouraging tree interested people to develop their interests fully and help, where they are able, others to do so too. See below guidance how to run an Introductory Tree Identification Course, record your local tree treasures and the Diary page where lectures and others events of tree interest are advertised for free. Ordinary citizens who care about trees should be in touch with one another so if you are or your group are willing to be the contact for the county or city in which you live, please send your details so a list can be published here.
