Juneberry is our Tree of the Month

The Amelanchier genus contains several species which can be found planted in public places and private gardens in the UK. Street trees tend to be A. lamarckii, often grown as standards, that is trees with a single trunk. In gardens, multi-stemmed trees are more common. All the Amelanchiers are commonly known as juneberry or snowy mespil, and they are quite similar in appearance.

At the start of April, they produce masses of delicate white flowers which some might confuse with cherries. Unlike cherries though, Amelanchier species have small leaves and smooth, grey bark. When the flowering period conicides with cool weather, the blossom can last for some time, but if it is warm and sunny, it tends to be very fleeting. So, this is a tree for a gloomy April!

In June, the tree produces small berry-like fruit which is much appreciated by birds and squirrels, and in the autumn, leaves can take on spectacular red and orange hues.

Find out about your local neighbourhood and the Community Groups near you. ‘Follow’ these groups to stay up-to-date with the latest information, and get involved by adopting newly planted trees near you.
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.
Abundance London
Abundance London is a voluntary organisation, founded in 2010, that harvests surplus fruit, plants orchards, hedgerows and trees, tries to reconnect people with nature and protect it in an urban setting, creates beautiful spaces, mainly through planting but also through art. Our neighbourhood extends from the east of Hounslow (Chiswick area) to Bedford Park in the south east of Ealing.
