Historic Trees Project

A study of the natural history and lore surrounding the historic trees, extant and long gone, of Renfrewshire based upon the article titled, ‘Records of Excursions in Renfrewshire’, by John Paterson, published in Annals of the Andersonian Naturalists, Glasgow, 1893.

The study follows the parishes in the same order presented in Annals of the Andersonian Naturalists — as displayed on the Menubar opposite.
