|Botanical Name||Fagus sylvatica|
|Location||Track footpath alongside Golf Course on Muttersmoor.|
|Notes||A fine row of mature beech topping the old Devon Hedge banks along the lane. They probably started as just part of the hedge but were left to develop into trees. Some were coppiced earlier and have grown as multi-stemmed trunks. The two sides of the lane seem to have been planted at different times. The East side trees seem to be about 100 years old but the west side has several that are 150-180 years old. |
