No Comments Philip March 25, 2011 at 6:34 pm - Reply I am only aware of planted Aspen of which their are some by the canal near Eastwood, Todmorden and on the roadside banking opposite Shaw Wood Road. We planted some in our wood at Tod quite a few years ago but beware, they sucker like mad and you will soon have a thicket over a vast area. Lovely trees though and the female will have pink caterpillar-like catkins in a week or two. Philip March 25, 2011 at 7:37 pm - Reply Correction, I think I mean male catkins! AndyC March 28, 2011 at 4:17 pm - Reply Hi thanks Philip,there are some at elland crem Iam going to look. Steve Blacksmith March 31, 2011 at 10:41 pm - Reply It is not widespread. I can think of only 4 sites apart from Philip's, and the crematorium, which I hadn't noticed. The natural looking ones are: Above Gorpley Res, on a cliff (not Gorple)and on top of the basic rock outcrop in Colden Dale. These are very small and wispy, being overshaded by beech. Hugh was going to look into thinning the beech. Then there used to be some probably planted ones at Southowrham and on the land of the "White House" I think it's called, at the top of the road up Shibden Valley.
