74 trees made it into
Heritage Trees Wales but unfortunately only 73 remain standing; the Pontfadog
Oak came crashing down in high winds this week. If that was the oldest tree in
Wales, supposedly growing since AD 802, what is the oldest tree today? But then
again, maybe it’s not dead yet. There have been suggestions of trimming the top
and propping it up. If you missed seeing it in the flesh, you can still read
about it in this beautiful book and in this BBC news item.
