Trees with Fruit to Attract Wild Life


Fruit of this kind is often not only very pleasing to look at but forms the attraction for a wide variety of wild life.

Yellow or amber berries often last longer than red ones, as they are not as attractive to birds.

White fruits, such as those of Sorbus hupehensis, are often the longest lasting of all.

All of these trees will produce some flowers that will be beneficial to insects.
