Tree Trails

The city’s first digital map of notable trees and App-guided ‘tree trails:

Brighton & Hove has some amazing and unusual trees in its parks and streets including a nationally important collection of rare elms.

For the first time, using your computer or smartphone, you can discover where these trees are and find out more about them.

The trees on these digital tree trails have been identified and selected in a collaborative effort by park Friends’ groups and local tree experts including Brighton Council tree officers. 

The digital tree maps have been produced by Dr Simon Edwards of TiCL Media Ltd, who, with The Tree Council of Great Britain and The National Federation of Parks and Green Spaces have facilitated the creation of such tree trails across the UK. ‘It’s been a privilege working with the different Brighton groups to create these tree maps. Brighton is lucky to have so many dedicated professionals and volunteers doing such good work all over the city. 

‘I hope these maps and trails will help residents find some of Brighton & Hove’s most wonderful trees. At present the TiCL app is available on iphone only – we hope to have an Android version released soon.’ 


The map shows two collections of trees across Brighton & Hove (‘Special Trees of Brighton & Hove’ and ’Great Elms of Brighton & Hove’) as well as tree trails of interesting trees in parks across the city. Follow the ‘More’ links and then ‘URL’ to see each collection and park trail on its own map on your computer.


The festival is organised by volunteers and we are grateful for the generous support of our sponsors.
