What was the first species of tree to colonise Britain after the ice age, as 
the ice retreated?

what sort of tree was George Washington supposed to have cut down as a child; 
- when asked if he'd done it he replied - yes father I cannot tell a lie?

The leaves of what sort of tree were used as a garland held over the heads of 
Roman emperors

What was once the commonest tree in English hedgerows, before dying out from 
disease in the 1960s and 1970s

What tree's wood is used to make cricket bats

Subject: Tree related questions for a quiz for ordinary people

Hello All,
I'm wanting to put together some questions for a family quiz in which 
everyone else are not tree people or know much about trees.

Do you have any good tree related questions that I could use that are not too 
difficult and not too obscure please?

I want to give my relatives a fighting chance of getting at least a couple 
right, if not more.

Many thanks as always,

with regards
Bettina
