We have these same trees amazing us in Keynsham Memorial Park, so please go and find them and see how good they look at this time of year. To help you B&NES Council has a special map with locations of trees noted for their age, size or rare quality HERE
and the list of trees can be found at the bottom of this page.
Most deciduous trees have by now shed their old leaves making it less likely that strong winter winds will topple the whole tree; the Copper Beech trees (Fagus sylvatica 'Purpurea') dropped all their leaves within a week of the cold weather starting and the Maidenhair tree (Gingko biloba), which is related to conifers but looks like a deciduous tree, dropped the whole carpet of bright yellow leaves in one day in the autumn. Most of the beech mast (fruit) have been taken by the local squirrels, who seem to be having a good year! The shape of all these trees is definitely more obvious now.
