This is just a list of the Trees which are Native to the UK. The list is remarakably short, compared to that of flowers.

Your Author has only put this list in as a reminder of which trees should take preference when he decides to put another tree into the wild flower finder website. There are hundreds of non-native trees growing in the UK, presumably all planted, and it would only be instructive to include any of those if they produced some interesting secondary metabolites, such as quinine from the bark of the Chinchona species of trees (and before you look for that on this website, please tell your Author where there is one in the UK, preferably near to Manchester :-)
