Deep as we are now, in the heart of Copse Week, I am starting to hear a lot of questions about the nature of our featured copse.
Our featured copse has four trees. This is the minimum legal number of trees for a copse, although I have seen a few very clever trios of trees pull off being a copse.
To be honest I'm not sure there are any actual laws about copses.
And that's just how they like it!
Sometimes due to angle or background or framing our copse looks to have fewer than four trees, and sometimes it appears to have more than four trees.
But no, it is a copse of four trees.
For a special Copse Week activity why not try counting the trunks below?
