Welcome to Tree Terms

You are here because you are interested in trees or have cause to learn more about them. Perhaps you are uncertain about your responsibilities as a tree owner, want to make a planning application or intend to engage a tree surgeon or arboricultural consultant.

The tree terms on this website are abridged from the book: A-Z of tree terms: A companion to British arboriculture. The definitions in the book are on average twice as long as those on this website because they include examples, practical perspective and other commentary.

You can compare the full definition of 'tree' here with the online definition here.

If you can’t find a tree term of interest to you, or have a suggestion for improvement, please submit it here.
