Explore our guide to the native and common non-native trees found in Britain. Each species is listed with identifying features, benefits to wildlife, uses, folklore and mythology and any threats to its survival.
Our native trees arrived and grew here naturally after the last Ice Age and were not introduced by humans. The list of common non-native trees are species that have been introduced by poeple. You may find these in parks, along streets, gardens and naturalised in the countryside.
