Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

Anniversary tree in Leatherhead

Tree planted a junction of Dorking Road (Gimcrack Hill) and St Mary’s Road, Leatherhead, Surrey, in 1969 to mark the fortieth anniversary of the founding of Leatherhead and District Countryside Protection Society.

Rather strangely the Society chose an exotic tree, ginkgo, Ginkgo biloba, from China, rather than a native species.
