Sorbus domestica (Service-tree)
Sorbus domestica or the Service tree, grows in warm places such as South exposed sites and requires a lot of light. It prefers to grow in deep, nutrient-rich permeable limestone soils for its deep roots to grow. It can grow up to five to ten metres high and can live up to six hundred years. This tree has a reddish, hard wood that is considered one of the most precious woods for carpentry and making instruments.
