Christopher’s Tree in springtime

Christopher's tree in springtime

Last autumn Christopher’s stepfather, Peter, had the inspired idea of dedicating a tree to him at his local Woodland Trust. It’s a field maple, which should be hardy and able to cope with the worst the weather can throw at it. But it’s been a particularly long and bitterly cold winter, and young saplings can be vulnerable. Last time I was visiting my parents, my mother asked me how the tree was getting on, and that she did hope it had survived the winter ok.

So I asked Peter if he would mind visiting the tree and taking a photo of it so that we could see how it’s doing. He was kind enough to do so, and reports that it is “a very healthy young field maple”. And indeed, it does appear to be thriving, which is good to see.
