The Tree Trail

Christopher Howard's Castle Park Tree Trail...

Dendrologist Christopher Howard is sole author of the Colchester Castle Park Tree Trail.
We are ever grateful for his permission to reproduce it here. The trail is also available in hard copy to buy
from the Tourist Information Centre in the Park (Hollytrees) and Red Lion Books, High Street. 

A note about tree no. 55, the Cork Oak (Quercus suber). Sadly, this tree died in 2020 and has
been removed. FoCP is however hoping to replace it.
