Britain’s tallest trees

Tall Trees Project 2009

Britain’s tallest tree, in this case non-native, is thought to be a Douglas fir which was measured in 2009 at 209ft. The Stronardron Douglas fir is near Dunans Castle in Argyll. [map point refers to castle]

A 144ft beech tree in the South Downs was named in 2015 Britain’s tallest native tree. The tree is in Newtimber Woods on the National Trust’s Devil’s Dyke Estate in West Sussex-
