Meetings with remarkable trees, the Arbtalk version

Recommended Posts

Thought i'd create a thread for people to post interesting trees they see on their travels. Don't have to be massive trees, just something of note.

 

I will kick off the thread with this little gem of an Oak tree which i'm sure anyone from the local area will recognize immediately. I've been driving past this tree for years but today had a bit of time so pulled over and took a few shots. Its a very picturesque looking tree as you approach it, but as you get closer you realize just how impressive it is to still be standing. Enjoy, and look forward to seeing your finds.

Good thread Steve.

 

I pulled out book off the shelf the other day. Time outs guide to the great tree of London.

 

I was surprised to see the Lewisham Dutch Elm in there, located in a park not far from my house. We were going to the park with the kids on the bike so I hunted it out.

 

Only took a couple of pictures but it was a pretty remarkable tree to have not been effected by the beetle.

What sort of height is it? Hard to tell from the pic

 

I am pretty useless at heights. I would say approx 65 max to the tips. Decent sized tree for that species in London.

 

There is an amazing Spanish Chestnut in Greenwich Park as well that I have a few pictures of. The trunk is amazing.

good thread Steve

 

Heres a woodland London Plane which is pretty remarkable in itself in this country but this one is still going strong despite the abuse it has endured over the years. Hollow trunk set on fire numerous times (now bricked up). Serious compaction and erosion with regards its roots. A remarkable tree:001_smile:
