Holly is well known for its tough, spiny leaves; the long, needle-like spines are a very successful deterrent to browsing animals. But look high up in a holly tree canopy and you might notice the leaves are less spiny. Unless giraffes are wandering around our countryside, fewer spines are needed high up. Most spines are produced lower down were sheep, goats, cattle, horses and deer are likely to browse the leaves.
