Venerable Trees is dedicated to the conservation of ancient trees of the Bluegrass and related regions.
Our goals are to:
- Work with land owners to improve management and ensure longevity of old trees in agricultural landscapes.
- Work to preserve as many Venerable Trees as possible during commercial and residential development, through collaboration with developers, land owners and tree care professionals.
- Establish cooperative nurseries to produce seedlings and cuttings from local Venerable Trees, and to make these trees available for replacement planting.
- Engage in applied research to ensure a sustainable future for the Venerable Trees of the Bluegrass.
