Donate : National Register of Big Trees



The establishment of the Register was funded by Derek McIntosh. The steady expansion of the Register will continue without need for additional funding. However, there are certain new projects and administrative systems that require additional funding.

The principal items are:

  • Development and maintenance of smart phone and pad applications.
  • Improved database recording systems and website searching.
  • Website maintenance.
  • The paid use of tree climbers to measure the height of selected forest giants in all areas.
  • Limited travel expenses to find Champion trees in the less travelled parts of the country.

As the Register is not a registered charity, financial support is secured by means of donations that are not tax deductable.
