The wild service tree is one of the rarest of British native trees. Flowers appear May/June time, clustered fruit ripens in September, leaves turn purplish/red in autumn.

  In years gone by the berries were a delicacy for country folk, hanging from strings in kitchens to ripen and then eaten like sweets, full of sugar and exotic hints of dried apricot and sultana. 

The bark is an attractive dark brown and pale grey.  Young trees are conic whilst older trees tall-domed and spreading.Flowers are white and the fruits are rounded in clusters, leathery brown.  Ripens in September. Leaves turn crimson red in autumn which is a pleasing sight.
