Best Trees for Birds
Posted on January 19 2017
Birdscaping is landscaping a garden to create a natural haven for our song birds.
With just a little knowledge and imagination we can change any space, from a city balcony to a country garden to attract an eclectic mix of birdlife and winter is the perfect time to start! Adding bird feeders and baths to our outside spaces will instantly transform it into a winter paradise for our feathered friends.
We can also create a natural, long-lasting way to produce wonderful winter food and shelter for our precious garden birds... by planting bird friendly trees!
Here’s our top FIVE winter birdscaping trees to especially attract Robins, Blackbirds, Wrens, Thrushes, Tits, House Sparrows and Doves.
A HOLLY tree’s bright red berries are full of goodness and energy for
our birds and its spiky leaves provide protection from predators too.
The beautiful CHERRY tree’s blossoms attract a crowd of insects
which are a great food and the fruit is loved by many small birds too.
Elderberries from the ELDER tree are high in vitamins and
nutrients to nourish all our birds in autumn and winter.
The ROWAN tree’s abundance of berries means there’s plenty of
fruit for song birds. This small native tree is a winner in any garden.
Also known as the strawberry tree, the ARBUTUS has flowers
and fruit in winter which are highly nutritious for all our birds.
