Lime

Tilia europaea

Lime trees are the seventh most common tree in the park along with Hornbeams.

A small Lime tree on the side of the path leading down to the Thrive garden.

There is a path that crosses the park diagonally and more or less goes from one car park to the other. This view is facing the Grange Road car park and the tree on the right is a Lime tree. The pond area is just on the left.

As you walk up from the Vicarage Road entrance along the path running parallel to the drive this Lime tree is the one on the right just before the path splits. It’s the one with the pink graffiti on it.

There’s a triangular pattern of pathways near the car park and halfway along the long side of that triangle, looking over towards Avenue Road is this Lime tree.

It’s not the only Lime tree I’ve noticed producing lots of shoots at the base of its trunk; perhaps they are more prone to it than other trees?

Near Avenue Road, opposite the small, children’s playground, a small Lime tree.

This is a bit of a tall, spindly Lime tree but it stands amongst a group of about six other trees and has probably grown like this as it competes for light.

It’s about one quarte of the way down the Avenue Road path, walking from the playground towards Grange Road.

About a third of the way along the path from the playground to the car park, just past a metal bench and half-way between path and fence, this slender Lime tree jostles with all the others around it for light.

The first of these two Lime trees is unmistakeable, standing right by the entrance opposite Grange Road. The other is somewhat smaller and is a few metres down the path alongside Avenue Road.
