Planted in Coates Wood, the field maple is a native British species that grows well at Wakehurst Place. It is one of 50 native tree species prioritised for conservation by the UK National Tree Seed Project, which recently secured a second year of funding from players of People’s Postcode Lottery. The tree was planted by Clare Trivedi and Simon Kallow from the UK National Tree Seed Project team, who were joined by the chairman of the Arboricultural Association, Jago Keen.
