For this National Tree Week, Robin Hart explains the long history of The Ginkgo biloba, just one of many notable tree species that can be seen in Petersfield.

The species is also known as the Maidenhair Tree.

Robin is author of the Petersfield Tree Trail and volunteers with Petersfield Society. He’s introduced by Noni Needs.

You can get a copy of the tree trail booklet from One Tree Books in Lavant Street, or from the Petersfield Museum.

This series will continue throughout the week.
