We hope that local naturalists will use this site to share information – what rare species have you seen?
Edward Thatcher is the Community Forester. He is funded by the Park Heeley Area Panel. He works with local groups to plant, renew and manage trees. Locally he has worked on the following :
1 X small Ornamental Cherry (Prunus Amanogawa) – a pink blossom tree
1 X Ornamental Silver Birch (Betula Pendula Fastigata) – a very beautiful and striking upright and narrow tree
1 X Golden Alder (Alnus Incana Aurea) – a beautiful orange barked tree with red catkins.
1 X An Elm (Ulmus carpinifolia Wredei Aurea) – a tree with striking lime green leaves
1 X Tamarix aestivalis – a beautiful meditteranean tree
25 X Beech trees as part of a hedge
