Speech House Arboretum
Leaders Clare and Mark Kitchen
Meet 11.00 at SO624121 by the northern gate into the arboretum.
There is a small car park near the gate and a bigger one across the road so please allow time to walk to the meeting place.
Cyril Hart the chief forester at one time oversaw the planting of this small arboretum with specimen tree of all those that were used in the forest at that time. Many of these species are now naturalising and have become part of our flora. We will use Poland’s vegetative key to identify them and will confirm our IDs by the labels on the trees and other features, especially cones, not mentioned in the key.
