imagefile (48)

Also known as Rowan it is a fast-growing, short-lived pioneer tree in the rose family, Rosaceae. It is typically a small tree, reaching a maximum height of 10-15 metres. The greyish-brown bark is smooth and shiny when wet. 

The flowers blossom after the leaves have appeared, usually in May or early June, and are creamy-white in colour. These give way to clusters of bright red berries in the autumn.
