This report, first published on the former Brookmans Park Newsletter, now the North Mymms Newsletter, in August 2002, features 49 species of flowering herbs and shrubs (flowers, bushes and trees) seen during a short survey from Gobions Open Space car park through Gobions Woodland and back in April 2002.

Illustrations have been added to the text submitted by Brenda Harold's WEA class, which carried out the survey. This page deals with the trees and shrubs. We have another page showing the herbs seen during the same survey.
