    Looks like I'm going to have pictures (nasty record shots!) in the Scotsman and possibly the Daily Mail...gulp. Who knows where else..seems like there is a lot of interest.

    "Graeme Walker, of SNH, said recent research into the genetics of whitebeam trees had shown that the population was much more diverse than previously thought.

    "These are unique trees which are native to Arran and not found anywhere else in the world," he said.

    "We knew about the Arran whitebeam and the cut-leaved Arran whitebeam, which are also crosses between rowan and different species of whitebeam, but it has been really exciting to discover a completely new species.

    "It is very complex picture but we think that the Arran whitebeams are gradually evolving towards a new type of tree which will probably look very similar to a rowan."

    This is OUR very own Graeme! :eek: Wow, I'm impressed! Can I have your autograph of famous media type person.......................I hope you're not going to let this go to your head and demand a fee for appearing on here etc. :eek: :D ;)

    Well done Graeme.....................proud of you oh discoverer of new species! :cool:

    Obviously a classic case of 'Not being able to see the trees for the woods' syndrome.
    Congratulations on your discovery, I just hope that some loony doesn't decide to chop it down or add it to their collection!!
