NotesOne of the trees planted when the council took over the site from the hotel.  The female catkins that are retained on the tree look a bit like cones but they are 'proper flowers'.  The difference being that the seeds are protected by an ovary but in conifers they are not, botanically conifers are known as Gymnosperms which means naked seed.  More about Alders if you click here.info
