Campus Nature Trail

Stop 16

point-16 giant redwoods Keele Hall lawn

At the end of the lawn where the two tracks meet (off to the right of the picture) are two small Giant Redwoods. It is native to California and is the tallest tree in the world, growing upwards of 300ft (100m).

point-16-2 Holm Oak

To the right of this group is a Holm Oak Quercus ilex. It is the common oak of the western Mediterranean with leathery, Holly-like evergreen leaves and a bark divided in small blocks (reticulated) resembling that of a Cedar. It has been grown in Britain for 400 years and, being evergreen, is especially useful in shelter belts.
