When Old meets New...

28 September 2009

This handsome Hawthorn is a bit of a landmark tree for us. It was recorded by Julie Short who got in touch through Facebook to tell us about her discovery. We thought there was something rather special about this – a seriously old tree being brought to the world’s attention through modern technology.. Julie was thrilled to bits when her tree was confirmed as being veteran. It’s an artist's dream - twisty, turny and knobbly but painting it may prove to be a challenge.. look at that slope!

Please do what Julie did – become a fan on Facebook and we’ll send you a something to say “thank you”. Record a tree and let us know about it - we might feature it as a “Tree of the Moment”.
