The autumn is when sycamore trees really stand out. The winged seeds playfully descend to earth like little helicopters and the the dark green five-lobe...[more]

Wych Elm tree Wych Elm tree

Wych elm is reproduced by seed and not by suckering so it is more resistant to Dutch elm disease than English elm. In areas where the disease is no longer prevalent planting may be worthwhile again. The timber is stronger than oak and there is now a serious shortage of it. Trees tolerate exposure to cold, air pollution and sea winds pretty well. Most lowland soils suit it very well and it also gro...[more]
