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.

How old do you think a tree like that is.

Supreme thread Steve! And yet another chance to show my favourite tree "The Llangernyw Yew" i felt truely humbled sitting in it's hollowed trunk. 4,500-5 thousand years old.

 

 

Is that your humbled face?:001_smile:

Darin, Unfortunately (or not) it's not in an area open to the public. Beyond the lake there's a new double avenue of limes and its towards the end of that. The head forester didn't realise it had particular significance until someone involved in searching for champion trees measured it. Not that anyone could be blamed for missing it, everywhere you turn there's something ancient, veteran or just remarkable.
