As part of this year’s birthday celebrations for Milton Keynes reaching the big 5-0, David Lock Associates (Town Planners and Urban Designers) created this website dedicated to the beautiful trees in the Borough.
Milton Keynes boasts over 5,000 acres of parkland, rivers, lakes and woodland including over 22 million trees. Here we mapped out the location of 49 of these trees – nominated by staff at DLA who have worked and lived in the area for many years - for either their location, their aesthetic qualities or personal memories they may hold.
We held a competition for a young resident of Milton Keynes to help us plant a 50th tree to conclude the year’s celebrations.
Please explore this site; we encourage you to post comments and images on social media following a visit to a specific tree.
Explore here to find trees by place - each has a unique story to tell. You will also find facts about different tree species. We hope you feel inspired to visit trees both local to you and in areas you don’t yet know.
