NotesHolly is one of the few evergreen native trees.  The leaves of young growth have sharp spines around the edge which offer protection from browsing animals.  Mature growth, high off the ground, does not need such protection and these leaves often have no spines.  Only female Hollies bear the distinctive red berries.  The berries are mildly poisonous to us but are an important winter food for birds and small mammals.  There is all sorts of mythology around Hollies.  For more about Holly trees, click here.info
