My Favourite Tree

Suitable for:6 to 10, 11 to 16

There are an estimated 4.5million trees in Sheffield. That’s more trees than people. As well as hanging out together in woods, they line our suburban streets, making Sheffield a very nice place to live.

Trees we see every day include sycamore, oak, and types of maple and birch. In the Botanical Gardens and other parks, you can see slightly more unusual trees, even some you would normally only see in other countries.

What’s your favourite tree?

On your daily walk, find a tree you like near where you live. Use the Woodland Trust app to identify it. Share a picture of your favourite tree using #sheffieldtrees, tell everyone what kind of tree it is and why you like it.
