What have I seen as I was walking around near Carn Brea? There are big rocks by the footpath and built into walls by the road. This is not a stone wall like those in my garden. By the church there is a wall that was repaired – to make room for this tree. There are many trees nearby. Do you know this tree? It has catkins on it, but it is not a hazel tree nor a willow tree. Its fruits are like little cones, but it’s not a firtree or a pine tree. It is not evergreen – it will lose its leaves in autumn. It is an alder tree.
