The Trendle Hill Tree

Updated: Feb 27

Sitting high above the valley on the chalk downs near the Cerne Giant stands a wind-blown oak, shaped by the winter gales blowing in from the Jurassic Coast to the southwest. Passing by it each day, we have listened to the wind in its branches through the winter, watched with burgeoning hope as it unfurls its leaves in spring, rested on the springy turf beneath its canopy to listen to the birds and insects in the summer and kicked through its leaves in autumn before heading back down towards the woodsmoke and welcoming lights of the village below. And so this tree, with its crookedly pleasing form remaining a constant throughout the changing seasons became a friend and so, when we were looking for a logo which symbolises what Dorset means to us, this was the friend we chose to represent us.
