Bursa and its around had been a refuge to so many civilizations since antique times to recent times. Beginning from antique ages, first it comes to Ottoman period and than today with so many historical monuments. As being the most important parts of cultural inheritance; the monumental trees enable us to communicate with our past and presence. The natural and the cultural inheritance has begun to get corrupted very quickly because of the problems of earth, air and water pollution also as a result of the migrations to big cities we have the problem of the unearned income of lands. Against all these threatenings, we have to protect these inheritances since we should be sensitive about the environment in general terms. Naturel green areas have to be preserved as they are for the benefit of future generations and they should equally be kept out of hazards stemming out of modem technological achievements. Based on this fact, social clubs, community circles and neighborhood activity teams have been created all over the world in the course of the last decade. Monumental trees are in an important part of this national heritage. At last but not the least, the national heritage in terms of monumental trees should carry some important messages together with their beauties and we have to do our best to understand the underlined philosophy these messages reflect. Very few an amount of national heritage are already classified within the context of the national literature. The lack of adequate literature on monumental trees in is another crucial fact too (Asan 1987). Key Words: Monumental tree, candidate monumental tree, cavity.
