It’s National Tree week, and every day this week at Shine Radio, Robin Hart of the Petersfield Society highlights a specific Petersfield tree and its history.
Today we hear about the Chile Pine, seen in many Petersfield gardens. The species is known to some colloquially as the monkey puzzle tree and to others (like Robin) by its Latin name Arucaria Araucana.
Robin Hart’s series on Petersfield trees continues all this week. You’ll be able to hear the full series at shineradio.uk and if you’d like to take the Petersfield tree trail that Robin mentioned you can pick-up the booklet at One Tree Books on Lavant Street or at the Petersfield Museum.
