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.

Populus tremula - Aspen

Aspen has been planted in a number of places throughout Cornwall and then naturalised through self-sown seedlings. Aspen can be found at Roscroggan (SW64K, 1996, C.N.French), near Trevaskis (SW74T, 1993, C.N.French), at Treliver Farm, St. Wenn (SW96S, 1996, I.J.Bennallick), Greenamoor Bridge (SX29M, 1990, M.Atkinson) and Woodcocks Well (SX36J, 1996, M.Atkinson).
