Trees planted in recent seasons
1
1 × Copper Beech (in 22-23)
Fagus sylvatica 'Purpurea'

Beech trees are large native trees with smooth grey bark and oval leaves. They produce triangular nuts held in woody cases in the autumn which in some years, known as mast years, can occur in vast quantities.

Copper beeches have distinctive purple leaves which make these trees easy to spot. When the foliage furst emerges in spring, they are a beautiful copper colour. This characteristic is where the name comes from.

Environmental Benefits

Trees provide more benefits the older and larger they are.

2
2 × Hop Hornbeam (in 22-23)
Ostrya carpinifolia

Hop hornbeams look similar to regular hornbeams, but they are an entirley different species. Distuinguish them from their similar looking cousins by rough bark and denser, hop-like fruiting bodies.

Environmental Benefits

Trees provide more benefits the older and larger they are.

3
2 × Hornbeam (in 22-23)
Carpinus betulus

Hornbeams are fine attractive trees that eventually become quite large, but not quite as big as beech trees.

Look out for fluted, muscular trunks and serrated oval leaves, similar to beech. Drooping clusters of winged nuts become quite conspicuous in the autumn.

Environmental Benefits

Trees provide more benefits the older and larger they are.

Environmental Benefits

Trees provide more benefits the older and larger they are.

Tulip Trees are a large North American species from the east coast related to the Magnolias. They have distinctive square-ended leaves, and in May produce cream-soda smelling flowers resembling tulips.

Cherry Plum is our Tree of the Month

Perhaps the first blossom trees most people will encounter not far from their own front doors are the Purple Cherry Plums.

Widely planted across London, they have already started showing their blossom, which in fact, is a little later this year than in some years. There are two cultivars you are likely to come across, 'Pissardii' with pale pink, almost white flowers (like the ones above), and 'Nigra' with pinker blooms. The flowers of these trees are perhaps their loveliest attribute, they are followed by very deep purple leaves that can look a little foreboding, especially when they are planted in groups or avenues.
