Bird Cherry is our Tree of the Month

One of the last cherries to flower is bird cherry, a tree native to the UK, although not the south east of England. Despite that, it thrives in urban areas all over the country including in London where it can be seen very frequently.

Unlike the flowering cherries that make such an impression earlier in the spring bird cherry flowers in May and also unlike thos ornamental trees, it holds its flowers in spikes. These white flower spikes point in all directions, appearing to cover the canopy with hundreds of ice creams!

Bird cherries are also distinguished from other Prunus species by their smooth grey bark which does not have the horizontal slits – or lenticels – which are so conspicuous on other species in this genus.

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 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.
