Treezilla is attempting to make a monster map of every tree in the United Kingdom – hence its name similarity to the mythical Godzilla monster. The process of adding a tree consists of:
- Signing up and clicking on a link to add a tree
- Then zooming in on the map on their website and clicking a location to add a tree
- Adding more information about that tree, eg species, size, disease
The information you input can be used to serve a wide variety of scientific objectives including the study of new and emerging tree diseases, evolution of the ecosystem services provided by a tree, and effects of climate change on tree growth.
Be kind to trees today, and map some trees in your locality, even in your own back garden. Action only available in the UK.
