General tree description
Crataegus monogyna is a native tree, often planted as hedging. It can grow to 15 metres and has a spreading and untidy shape. Its bark is dark orange-brown or pink-brown, narrowly cracked into rectangles. The leaves are up to 6cm long, deeply cut, with lobes toothed at the tips. White, fragrant flowers come in clusters in late spring. Red fruits (haws) appear in autumn. They contain a single pip.
