This is an indicative list of what trees maybe in flower or bearing fruits throughout the year. It is not an exhaustive list, but an informative listing to encourage readers to explore further, and I suggest the Collins Book of British trees as a starting place.
The dark month of cold and winter arrives. The trees are nearly all threadbare, except the Oak and Beech. The oak will be an excellent indicator of the winter to come, for the more leaves it carries, the harder or more severe the winter, this being a proven excellent and reliable saying.
The coniferous trees , together with the holly, laurel, yew, plus the ivy are the sole brightness of this month.
