Protected Tree, Building &  Monument Websearch

The Registers for all Protected Trees, Buildings and Monuments can be accessed from this site. The records are searchable in a number of ways, a map (the most accurate), a searchable database or by reading through a downloadable document. The information on the database and the document is based on the name and road name of the property at the time the monument, building or tree was legally protected, this forms a legal document and cannot be changed.

Many properties have changed their name or been subdivided since they were originally protected and sometimes road names will have changed too. To be certain that you have the most up to date information please check on the Protected Trees, Buildings and Monuments Webmap link.
