Wild Service Tree - Sorbus torminalis

The Wild Service Tree is a medium-sized, deciduous, native tree. It has flame shaped leaves that turn red and gold in the autumn, and produces white flowers followed by brown fruit - the flesh is edible and delicious, but the seed should be spat out as they are slightly toxic.

Its dark-coloured, fissured bark is covered in grey scales, giving older trees lots of character. These are sapling trees: you can buy older, larger Wild Service Trees here.

The Wild Service Tree was planted as a woodland guardian by the Druids. It is also called the Chequer tree, and the Prime Minister's official country home is named after it. Altogether beautiful and any fertile soil is suitable. To 25m
