Tree Bark in Winter

This is the final winter walk report from our wanderings around the woodland walks at our local National Trust property, Attingham Hall. So far we have concentrated on different aspects of the trees we love looking at as we wander, and this one will be no different. We will be enjoying the differences in their bark, colours, textures and patterns.

Hopefully the next report may be more spring like!

Here is a gallery of the shots I took in late February showing close-ups of tree bark.

I thought I would finish with what is in my mind the most beautiful bark of all, that of the Betula pendula, our native birch. It changes so much during the lifetime of the tree. My photo shows it at its most mature. Beautiful!

A retired primary school head teacher, I now spend much of my time gardening in our quarter acre plot in rural Shropshire south of Shrewsbury. I share my garden with Jude my wife a newly retired teacher , eight assorted chickens and a plethora of wildlife. Jude does all the heavy work as I have a damaged spine and right leg. We also garden on an allotment nearby. We are interested in all things related to gardens, green issues and wildlife.

What a great article – a tree huggathon! He sounds such an interesting character. Prince Charles was thought of as a bit made when he confessed to tree hugging but he was just ahead of his time.
