All round the garden are interesting trees, particularly maples. On the Front Drive north of the Hall are three large Acer cappadocicum from Turkey, while nearer the East Wing there is a young plant of Acer davidii with red new growth, grown from seed collected in China in 1992. The Paper Bark maple, Acer griseum, can be seen in a number of places with its distinctive peeling reddish bark, and there is a splendid old Acer palmatum and Acer nikoense in Silverwood which colour bright red in autumn. Acer capillipes, rufinerve, japonicum, palmatum var dissectum, circinatum, and longipes ssp longipes can all be seen scattered around the garden while there are a few old birches of uncertain origin and name, but probably hybrid forms of Betula utilis and jacquemontii, with a fine pink barked Betula albosinensis var septemtrionalis below the bottom terrace. Many young birches have also been planted from wild seed, including Betula utilis, jacquemontii, albosinensis, szechuanica, ermanii, and grossa.
