Dear Readers, this week we have a quiz with a twist! First of all, identify the eight trees shown below from their leaves/berries/twigs/buds etc etc. Then, take the first letter of each tree to make a ninth tree. Voila! You are a tree expert.
All answers in the comments by 5 p.m. UK time next Friday (19th November) please, and the solution will be published on Saturday 20th November. I think it’s especially important not to look at the comments until you’ve worked out the anagram – I will try to disappear any answers quickly, but there’s sometimes a delay between you posting your replies and me getting a notification.
