Liechtenstein  Issued Stamps on Trees

liech trees stampsLiechtenstein issued a definitive stamp series with trees . The oak can grow up to 50 metres high (face value: CHF 0.85). Its hard wood has always been used in a whole host of different ways. The weeping willow (face value: CHF 1.00) loves sunny spots. It often adorns the banks of waters with its long, slender drooping branches. The fruits of the walnut tree (face value: CHF 1.50) have been an important food for humans for thousands of years as they are a good source of energy on account of their high fat content. The aspen (value: CHF 1.70), also called willow, is one of the most important food plants for butterflies indigenous to Central Europe. The larvae of the most beautiful species live in this tree. The birch (face value: CHF 2.00) is easy to recognise by its black and white bark. As it is only pollinated by wind, it releases a large amount of pollen compared with other trees.
