Ash, Holly & others

It might seem strange to group Holly with Ash but they are more closely related than they are to some other trees in the park. They are both Asterids, as is The Handkerchief tree. The Saxifragales is an Order similar in hierarchy to the Asterids and the only two trees within that Order, in the park, are the Persian ironwood and the American Sweetgum; so they are included here, too.

Common Ash, Fraxinus excelsior

There’s a small triangular area just off the drive and this Ash tree is near that triangle just opposite the link to the drive.

The remains of last year’s keys can be seen still hanging in the branches.

This Ash tree is just off the path running parallel to the drive from the Vicarage Road vehicle entrance.
