Silver Maple is our Tree of the Month

Silver maples are so called because the undersides of their leaves appear silvery-white. In June, their leaves are fresh and fully-developed, and the trees look at their best, especially if there's a breeze causing them to flutter and show silver flashes.

Silver maple leaves otherwise resemble other common maples including Sycamore and Norway maple, so it is their undersides that distinguish them from these other common species. Another time to look out for them is late February to early March when they come into flower with red inflorescences that can be quite distinctive, but are not as eye-catching as a flowering cherry, so many people may not notice them.

They can become very large trees, so most street trees have been pollarded to maintain a manageeble shape and size.

Feltham
Feltham in Bloom
‘Feltham in Bloom’ grew from the enthusiasm of a group of youngsters, in the Garden Club at Victoria Junior School, who badgered the Local Council, until they were allowed to take over the planting and maintenance of derelict public open spaces outside the school boundary. The reaction by neighbours and passers-by were so positive, that a whole new Community group was set up to bring more civic pride - through plants. As part of that, we’ve planted over 70 new trees inside the school, and given away well over 250 baby trees to our local Community. Our neighbourhood reaches into Bedfont, Feltham North, Feltham West, Hanworth Park and Hanworth.

Heston
Heston Action Group
Heston Action Group is a young, non-party political community group created in 2019 with passionate residents who wanted to simply “clean and green” our local area. The area has had a tradition of street trees and most houses have front gardens. HAG is driven to protect those remaining and encourage new growth. Our neighbourhood is in the North West of the Borough of Hounslow, comprising Heston East, West and Central. To the north east, the area borders common land which itself borders Osterley Park. Within its borders there are two parks and 5 primary schools and one secondary school, most with large areas of open space.
