Someone told me that rowan trees are protected. I didn't google because so many conflicting stories. I live close to a mountainous area that has a lot of rowan trees. Is it forbidden to dig one up and plant it in my garden? They are so beautiful.

Wild weeds! Dig up a strong looking straight sucker in Oct/Nov. and away with you. Just in case though it might be advisable to go up into the mountains about 3 am, when the foxes are howling, the banshee is ffering you her comb, a full moon and the headless horseman is travelling by on his black stallion. Orrrrr you could buy one at your local economically stressed garden centre you robber !!!!!!!

Don't mind me as I have dug loads of them up over the years and replanted them in what I thought was a better location.

I didn't see it written. Two people told me that. One in a garden centre and one neighbour in general chit-chat. I take it that it is not true then. Tagwex I don't believe in the banshee.

She exists alright. I met one of them once. Plenty of them down your area. In fact I wouldn't leave the house at night anymore!

You are safe Tagwex. She only follows the O's and the Mac's. I therefore should worry but don't.

Forgive my ignorance (having received no irish education) but doesn't every surname when translated to Irish start with O'... Therefore you should be worried.

Some of Norman descent have de de Paor (Power) de Riste (Roche) are the only 2 I can think of now but there are many. Some take nothing Breathnach..

Anyway back to my trees. I think I will buy them. Safest option.

You started it with your banshee and headless horseman malarkey. In future don't post on any thread I do. Smile

Fine by me. I was only trying to prevent you from getting even more entries on your criminal record, trying to steal trees from the wild. Tut tut.

Tagwex, get lost.

So Greengage I have decided to buy the trees but are you saying it is not against the law anyway?

It is illegal to uproot any wild plant without the landowner's permission, except for certain species on the European "Red List". Rowan is not, so just ask, and when they are dormant, you can lift them. Remember to take the largest intact root system possible, and replant as soon as possible.
