ID:	47233Hi guys

    the forestry have planted these trees on our permission in Scotland.
    Can anyone name the 3 tree types?
    Are they edible to sika or roe?

    thanks

    Looks like hazel, birch and rowan and I think all three are edible to sika & roe but could do with a bit of back-up

    In the first picture it's quite difficult to see the shape of the leaves but to me it looks like more like Alder than Hazel. Second is Birch and third looks like Rowan.

    Very edible, could even be described as bait

    I agree, Hazel, Birch and Rowan. Hazel in particular is a key understorey shrub for a large number of wildlife species and really useful for coppicing.

    Alder birch Rowan. Alder will get left alone unless desperate.

    I would say Alder, Birch & Rowen.
    Whereabouts in Scotland? Our patch at Dumfries had bags & bags of saplings ready to plant but they have all gone & not planted on our patch.

    Agree that the first is probably alder.

    Alder, Birch and Rowan, the Alder will be the last to get eaten

    My experience with Roe is that they are not that keen on Birch but will queue up for Rowan.
