Monkey Puzzle – Araucaria araucana
The previous Trees of the Week have featured broadleaf trees – it’s time for an evergreen and the Monkey Puzzle is a brilliant example.
Japanese Acer – Acer palmatum
The Japanese Acer, like last week’s Tree of the Week the Silver Birch, makes an ideal garden tree for anyone. They won’t all grow into veritable giants like the one pictured above.
Silver Birch – Betula pendula
Silver Birch, like the Common Oak which featured in Tree of the Week Part 1, is a native tree to Britain. It’s also called a ‘pioneer’ tree because it’s usually the first one to settle a newly opened up area. Whether at the edge of a woodland or a bit of open ground in an urban setting.
Horse Chestnut – Aesculus hippocastanum
Number 2 in our Tree of the Week blog is the gorgeous Horse Chestnut – most of you will know it as the Conker tree, but there’s more to this beauty than playing games with its big, shiny seeds!

Common Oak – Quercus robur
It would be impossible to consider writing a “Tree of the Week” blog post about the trees we love and admire, without making the Common Oak number one on that list!
We’d like to introduce you to some of our favourite trees….
Tree Heritage would like to wish you
a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
Tree Heritage would like to wish you a happy (and safe) Bonfire Night!!
Don’t forget to check your bonfire for hedgehogs before you light it…they’re struggling enough as it is!
Do you have a Blue Atlas Cedar in your garden and is it looking healthy and blue like above, or is it affected by the latest tree disease?
