Copper beech south of Bush Close
Copper beeches (Fagus sylvatica f. purpurea) are documented as natural mutants of the common beech in various parts of Europe, as early as the 15th century. The tree is classified as native in the south of England and non-native in the north. Copper beeches grow to a height of more than 40m. The name of the tree is derived from the coppery to deep purple coloured leaves > LinkExternal link.

The flowers > LinkExternal link are both male and female and grow on the same tree. In April and May the tassel-like male catkins hang from long stalks at the end of twigs, while female flowers grow in pairs, surrounded by a cup.
