Lovely old Sweet Chestnut

I have passed this tree many times and have always wanted to stop and get some photographs, well today I did. Its a lovely old Sweet Chestnut that is in decline but still fighting on.

Not too sure as to why its declining, it has one half of the tree that is dead wood, and some of the branches are scarred on the underside, could be fire damage some years ago?.

Either way I love this tree and I'm sure it has some storys to tell.


  1. Great tree Simon, one of my favourites too. Theres some crackers that are quite numerous in my local woods.Looks the perfect spot to burn out a car. Looks in better condition away from the bench area.
