There are nuts and seeds and cones aplenty in the woods at this time of year. There are Beech nuts on the Beech trees.
Beech trees, Fagus sylvatica, are often viewed as native to the south of England, although they may have been brought here by Neolithic people after the last Ice Age.
There are Black Alder trees, Alnus glutinosa, important hosts to over 140 species of plant-eating insect.
Alder trees are also used for the bodies of Fender electric guitars. I think Ash was probably too expensive.
And there are Chestnuts, Castanea sativa, with the same name as Kastanea, a town in Ancient Greece where they grew. Chestnuts. So good, they named a town after them.
Autumn in the woods. There are treasures at every turn.
