Treelife Visit Kew Gardens

The Treelife team had a visit to Kew Gardens to brush up on their tree ident and latin names! As you can see from the photos we experienced the best and worst of the great British weather! 

The team photo above was taken on the Lucombe Oak Quercus x hispanica 'Lucombeana'. The tree was planted in 1773 and was then moved 20m from its original location. The tree was already 73 years old at this point so to do so would have been no small undertaking! 

Another highlight was the treetop walkway which gave a fantastic birds eye view of the gardens.  Quite literally in the case of the parakeets that posed for the photo below!
