Nuts, berries and galls

Autumn is an exciting time to explore Suffolk's woodlands and parks, with lots of colourful surprises to be discovered.

Nuts and berries


Nuts and berries are fruit produced by trees. They are often eaten by birds and mammals which helps disperse the seeds inside. Look at the reserves on the left for clues of where to find some.

Galls


Galls look a lot like fruit, but they are in fact growths which happen due to parasites like fungi, insects or mites. Galls are both the home and the food source for the maker of the gall.
