Birch trees are one of the UK's most recognisable and beautiful species. Related to Alders, Hazels and Hornbeams, the Birch, either Downy or Silver, is one of the UK's most recognisable trees. It's lemon and lime variegation and black and white bark make it a common inclusion in many landscape photographs. What do you really know about the Birch though? The next issue will have an in-depth look into all aspects of this wonderful tree.

And just like our Heather article in a previous issue, we would like to include some of your best photographs of the Birch, either as part of the landscape, as a subject in its own right or as part of an abstract, detail or macro.



We'll be picking the images that best represent Birch trees in all its varieties and habitats. The article will be published in issue 123 and the deadline for submissions is 23rd September Midnight. Entries for this article are now closed.
