in 1998 I planted 350 trees on my land. The Woodland trust supplied native broadleaf trees which included Oak, Ash, Field Maple, Hornbeam, Hawthorn, Hazel, Apple, Cherry and Rowan and I added White Poplar. The only evergreen was the holly.
I consider this to be the single most important thing I have done in my life. It has been wonderful evolving with the trees and learning more about nature by observing and photographing. We now know a lot more about trees and the way they communicate within the 'wood wide web' and I write about this.
