Trees at Snakemoor Nature Reserve

There are over 30 main tree species and several varieties within many of these families. Within the Acer family can be found the large Sycamore A, the Field Maple and others.

There are few Atropurpureum Sycamores near the entrance where the large leaves are dark green with purple underneath. The Oak trees are mainly our native oak, but there are also others including the Red Oak. There are a few young Black Poplars near the ditch to the east of the pond. These are largely confined to the Aylesbury Vale within the UK.
