London, Feb 27 : When it comes to telling the difference between an English oak or a sycamore, one third of Britons might score a zero, according to a new study.
The researchers said that one third of Britons cannot identify the nation''s most famous types of trees
The study by UK firm Forest Holidays found that one in 20 people questioned could not name any of Britain''s common trees.
In fact, seven in ten people couldn't even identify the horse chestnut, which has produced conkers for generations of schoolboys in UK.
For the study, 250 adults were shown pictures of 10 of Britain''s most popular types of tree and were asked to name them.
