In order to save our traditional orchards, and the thousands of animals they support, we need to know where they remain and what condition they are in. Together with wildlife lovers like you we have been locating the traditional orchards of the UK for the last eight years. Locating traditional orchards is often problematic. Ordnance Survey (OS) maps do not tell us the age or condition of particular orchards, and many orchards are not marked at all, so we use aerial photographs to identify traditional orchards sites.
