IF YOU ARE PLANTING NATIVE TREES PLEASE FOLLOW THE GUIDELINES ISSUED BY THE FORESTRY COMMISSION


The U.K. is divided into 4 main seed zones:
Northwest (known as area 10)
Northeast (     “        “      “    20)
Southwest (    “        “       “   30)
Southeast (      “        “       “   40)
Which have themselves been subdivided according to climatic and geological variation, (see map)
In order to preserve biodiversity and to plant trees in the most suitable climatic areas tree seedlings should be planted from within these zones. For example native trees should only be planted in area 303 if the seedlings were also collected from area 303
Elevation is also important, so again trees should only be planted above 300 meters if they were collected from within that zone at above 300 meters.
Collecting seed
The above also relates to seed collection for the same reasons. So when collecting seed :

  • Try to ensure that the parent tree is of local origin. Look for absence of organized planting, evidence of coppicing , varying ages of trees,  evidence from maps etc.
  • Try to collect equal quantities of seed from 20-30 individual specimens within a defined area of interbreeding trees (remember pollen is dispersed by wind and insects  -bees can fly up to 3 miles.
