Hooray, you’ve found the next tree. This tree was planted by work men from the Builders Yard in memory of John Vanderstam d. 28th November 1997 who was a dedicated worker from the Builder’s Yard located by the Eco Centre.
FACT – The Beech tree is one of the UK’s most popular trees – so much so that it’s often considered the queen of British trees.
Beech trees provide important food and homes for lots of species. The bark is often home to a variety of fungi, mosses and lichens, and seeds are eaten by mice, voles, squirrels and birds. Moth caterpillars enjoy munching through the leaves, including clay triple-lines and olive crescent. Beech woodland makes an important habitat for lots of butterflies too. So this tree is vital for the wildlife at Moor Pool.
How many species of Beech trees are there?
Time to move onto the next tree on the estate, remain on Carless and walk up towards the Spinney and look out for your next QR code which is beside a large tree.
