Trees

Trees are an important component of the natural landscape because of their prevention of erosion and the provision of a weather-sheltered ecosystem in and under their foliage. They also play an important role in producing oxygen and reducing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, as well as moderating ground temperatures. They are also elements in landscaping and agriculture, both for their aesthetic appeal and their orchard crops (such as apples). Wood from trees is a building material,as well as a primary energy source in many developing countries. Trees also play a role in many of the world's mythologies. In short trees are amazing!

A tree is a perennial woody plant. It is most often defined as a woody plant that has many secondary branches supported clear of the ground on a single main stem or trunk with clear apical dominance. A minimum height specification at maturity is cited by some authors, varying from 3 metres to 6 metres; some authors set a minimum of 10cm trunk diameter (30cm girth). Woody plants that do not meet these definitions by having multiple stems and/or small size are usually called shrubs. Compared with most other plants, trees are long-lived, some reaching several thousand years old and growing to up to115m (379ft) high.

Cornus macrophylla

Cornus macrophylla, Large-leaf dogwood forms a small, often low-branched or multistemmed tree, usually no more than 8 or 10m in height when grown in the open in gardens. The species is known to top 20m in the wild, but such plants would have been heavily shaded and very old. In cultivation, branching is much like that of Cornus controversa (table dogwood), with strongly upright stems and horizontal tiers of branches. Each branch terminates with a handful of curving, shortly ascending twigs with prominent pointed buds. The grey-brown bark is smooth and attractively mottled in youth, eventually becoming plate-like with age.

Cotoneaster frigidus

Native of the Himalaya; introduced in 1824, and one of the most striking of all Cotoneasters. The splendid clusters of ‘berries’ wreathing the branches make one of the most brilliant sights of autumn and early winter - the fruit often persisting well into the new year on the naked branches, except in years when the Fieldfares and Redwings pay a visit.
