Oak – Quercus petrea  

Oaks are the keystone species in a wide range of habitats. Bugs and butterflies, birds and bats
all rely on the oak for food and shelter. The oak is a common
symbol of strength and endurance.



Silver Birch - Betula pendula

Watch its leaves change from vibrant green to striking gold.

The silver birch has an open canopy which allows plenty of light to reach the ground. It has been used in traditional medicine to promote healing, relieve pain, and treat inflammations and infections of the skin.

 



Beech – Purple Beech – Fagus Sylvatica purpurea

The purple beech is a stunning dark purple and the tree canopy casts dense shade and protection over the ground beneath it. Beech bark is extremely thin and this delicate bark means carvings, such as lovers' initials, remain because the tree is unable to heal itself.



Sycamore – Acer psuedoplantanus  

In Wales the Sycamore tree is used in the traditional craft of making 'love spoons' and often the winged seeds are known as 'helicopters' and used in model-making by children. Sycamore is attractive to many insects, moths and birds. The flowers provide a good source of pollen and nectar to bees and other insects, and the seeds are eaten by birds and small mammals. 


 



Rowan - Sorbus aucuparia  

Mature Rowan trees can live for up to 200 years. The bark is smooth and silvery grey, and leaf buds are purple and hairy. The leaves are eaten by caterpillars and moths, including the larger Welsh wave and autumn green carpet. Flowers provide pollen and nectar for bees and other pollinating insects, while the berries are a rich source of autumn food for birds. Legend has it that these trees protect against evil spirits.




Cherry – Prunus avium

Deep red cherries and beautiful blossom abound. The species part of its botanical name – ‘avium’ refers to birds, who eat the cherries and disperse the seed. Traditionally cherries were planted for their fruit and wood. The sticky resin was thought to promote a good complexion and eyesight, and help to cure coughs.



 



Willow – Salix

All willows were seen as trees of celebration in biblical times, but this changed over time and today willows are more associated with sadness and mourning. Caterpillars feed on the foliage and the catkins provide an important source of early nectar and pollen for bees and other insects. The branches make good nesting and roosting sites for birds.





Apple  - various

Apples are an important food source to wildlife especially birds. Bushy trees make excellent nesting spots for blackbirds. Norse mythology portrays the apple as the fruit of eternal youth and also fertility.
