Jersey Post issued its Europa 2011 stamp with theme, entitled ‘Forests’, by featuring a set of stamps depicting foliages of various trees to be found in Jersey.
Being an island of some 45 square miles, Jersey is not home to any forests as such. We do, however, have woodland in scattered locations, with a rich variety of trees and vegetation for us to enjoy and, who better to ask for a selection of woodland trees to feature on our stamps than local experts, Jersey Trees for Life.
