The Treehunter website now live

Rob Mcbride, AKA The Treehunter, has worked closely with Meres and Mosses; running two very successful I-Spy Tree days late last year to idenify ancient trees in the Meres and Mosses area. Rob's enthusiasm for "tree hunting" has been recognised across the world and he has even been featured on the BBC's Countryfile.

Visit his website at In Rob's words "it's treemendous"!
