Hidden Trees of Britain
Breaking the nation down into eleven regions, I discovered trees growing in extreme conditions - yews that have taken root in the most inhospitable crevices in the limestone pavements of Lancashire, and ancient individual oaks that have grown to breathtaking proportions, such as the massive 42 foot girthed frame of the famous
Bowthorpe Oak in Lincolnshire.
On my travels I found Britain's most northerly ash wood in the west Highlands of Scotland, tamarisk-topped hedge banks in Cornwall, pure laburnum hedges in Shropshire, a single aspen which covers several acres in Wales, some of the last surviving mature elms and one of our rarest native trees, Ley's whitebeam, with only 13 specimens known.
