The trees at Keele

We have over 150 species of tree on campus, not counting the 240 species and varieties of Flowering Cherry! Amongst them are many of our common native species as well as some more unusual ones. So, if you can't tell a Beech from a Birch or just want to know a bit more about them then read on!

Sorbus aucuparia  'Rossica Major'

White flowers are produced in the spring that develop into clusters of red berries by late summer. Green leaves turn to yellow before leaf fall in the autumn.
