About Syon Park » Trees
The tree collection at Syon dates back to the plantings of the late eighteenth century. It was extensively developed in the time of the 2nd Duke, with a predominance of species from Eastern North America. It is to this period that Syon owes its superb Taxodiums and Liquidambars, while Asian species include remarkable specimens of Pterocarya and Zelkova.
Many of Syon’s important trees are a considerable size, and they include more than twenty Champion Trees, the largest specimens in the Country. However, there have been times through Syon’s long history when tree planting has been neglected, and so the estate has embarked upon an extensive programme of replanting: in the last fifteen years the number of tree species grown at Syon has more than doubled to over 400.
