Registering and protecting heritage trees

Many societies recognize specific tree specimens as iconic representations in nature of their own socio-cultural history. Numerous trees in cities and towns across the US, for example, are known as “liberty trees” which, because of their age, were standing during important points of American history. Singapore developed a “Heritage Tree Scheme” in 2001 to protect their heritage trees, and other countries have followed with similar programs. This researcher has compiled a list of such efforts around the world.
