The Dark Hedges is an avenue of beech trees along Bregagh Road between Armoy and Stranocum in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. The trees form an atmospheric tunnel that has been used as a location in HBO's popular television series Game of Thrones, which has resulted in the avenue becoming a popular tourist attraction.[1][2][3][4]

The Dark Hedges were used as a filming location for the "King's Road" in the television series Game of Thrones.[1][7] The trees have also been used in the 2017 Transformers film The Last Knight.[1]

A tree preservation order was placed on the trees in 2004, to enable preservation and maintenance, and in 2009 the Dark Hedges Preservation Trust was set up.[2] Of the 150 trees originally planted by the Stuart family, about 90 remained by 2016. A survey in 2014 revealed that the trees are in various states of health and are at risk in bad weather. Two trees were destroyed, and one damaged, by Storm Gertrude in January 2016.[8] Another tree came down in Storm Doris in February 2017.[9][10] A tree toppled during Storm Hector in June 2018, and another came down during strong winds in January 2019.[11] As visitor numbers have increased, concern has been expressed over vehicular traffic damaging the trees' roots, as well as problems of graffiti and the daubing of sectarian slogans on the trees.[12] The Woodland Trust has stated that high traffic levels might cause the trees, which are surface rooting, to last less than twenty years.[13] In 2017 the Department of Infrastructure announced plans to close the road to traffic, due to visitor numbers causing possible damage and degradation to the site.[14] A ban on traffic using the road (between its junctions with Ballinlea Road and Ballykenver Road) came into place on 30 October 2017. Specified exemptions to the ban include emergency and agricultural vehicles in particular circumstances.[15][16]
