Get to know a tree at Rowallane, County Down

Children sitting on a tree branch at Rowallane Garden, County Down, in October

Be a bird and climb up to your perch in the best tree for climbing at Rowallane, the big grandfather tree in the pleasure grounds, the horse chestnut. Here you can look down on the world and feel the wind in your face.

Top tip from Averil Milligan, head gardener at Rowallane: 'When picking a tree look for nice chunky branches low down which will hold you snugly and make sure your parents are there to catch you on camera.'
