Trees for Bees
Trees, flowers and bees need each other to survive.
Trees and flowers need bees to pollinate them and bees require pollen for protein and nectar for energy. Without bees, many flowering plants, fruits and vegetables such as sunflowers, apples, pears, cherries, strawberries, citrus fruits, onions and beans would face extinction due to a lack of pollinators.
Many of our trees and woodlands would also disappear.
There would be no more honey and beeswax-based products such as candles, cosmetic creams, lotions, ointments, lipsticks and rouges.
Trees for Birds
Trees provide birds with at least three very important factors
for survival; food, shelter and a nesting habitat.
Food sources for birds vary with willow buds in springtime and
flowering catkins from the birch in the summertime.
In autumn and winter, trees like the holly, rowan and beech provide berries, fruits and seeds. The birds then help to disperse the seeds
which grow into new trees.
