Horse Chestnut
Cypress Oak

Horse Chestnut is a medium sized deciduous tree that is native to Greece but has been grown in North America for hundreds of years. It produces large nuts.

A top CO2 absorbing species. Experts think this tree may help climate change more than others.

Cypress Oak is an upright, columnar tree that is well suited as a privacy screen or for lining paths and driveways. The upright branch angle causes it to have a narrower spread which makes it suitable for areas with limited space. It has been described as having an elegant, formal look, growing into an upright oval shape with a short trunk. Compared to other oaks it has a much faster growth rate, especially when young.

Cypress Oak is an ancient oak species of England. Traditionally druids respect the oldest oak trees, considering them to be oracles.
