Flora of Cornwall (1999)

The descriptive text, below the map, is from the Flora of Cornwall (1999), which was a Tetrad Atlas (the maps had 2km square dots or Tetrads). The map on this web page depicts the plant's distribution at the 1km square scale and shows the records made pre-2000 which were used in the 1999 Flora and those made since.

Picea sitchensis - Sitka Spruce

Sitka Spruce has been widely planted in East Cornwall and to a much lesser extent in the west. Locations include to the east of Colliford Lake (SX17W, 1988, M.Atkinson), Innyham Wood (SX37T, 1989, R.J.Murphy) and Tregwindles (SW96Z, 1996, I.J.Bennallick). At Skimmel Bridge, near Sancreed it was recorded as regenerating from seed (SW43F, 1994, F.Potts).
