On 6th November, eight tree wardens travelled to Bedgebury Pinetum in Kent to view its collection of conifers and also see some wonderful examples of autumn coloured maples.

 

Especially interesting was a Redwood cultivar, very narrow, tall and pointed, unlike any other Redwood and a massive Leyland Cypress hedge which made an excellent backdrop for a silver birch, showing the bark to its full potential.


There is a main trail of about one mile but lots more to see off-trail.  Bicycles are available for hire if required. The visitor centre is well worth a visit, serving piping hot cups of tea, soup and homemade cakes.


This would be a great venue for the S. E. Forum next year.
