NotesA beautiful pair of trees with gleaming white bark, planted to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Sidmouth Branch of Lions International.  The bark is much whiter than that of the native Silver Birch and is used in its home in the Himalayas as writing paper for sacred texts and prayers.
Sadly, as with so many of the exotic trees around Sidmouth, most of Birches in the native region have been felled for human use.
