The lower parts of silver birch (Betula pendula) trunks become grey and deeply fissured with age, and are then very distinct from the trunks of downy birch (B. pubescens). This tree is at an interesting site where the habitats include birch woodland, juniper scrub and various forms of species-rich damp grassland.
