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.

Quercus ilex - Evergreen Oak

Evergreen Oak has been widely planted as a hedgerow species and is often associated with churchyards. It is well naturalised and has spread onto the mining areas and some heaths. Locations include Toll Point (SW72Y, 1993, C.N.French), near Tresawle (SW86W, 1991, C.N.French), around Probus (SW94D, 1995, M.Tempest), Lerryn (SX15I, 1996, M.Atkinson) and near Penlee Point (SX44P, 1991, M.Atkinson).
