NotesWith a girth of 372cm, this tree is between 190-210 years old.  Obviously, it was much taller than now but it has been attacked by fungus and had to be reduced for safety.  There was an equally large tree beside it which was felled completely.  They are on an old field boundary, possibly they were part of a beech hedge that was left to grow.  The tree workers have turned the old tree into what is called a standing snag, dead wood left as a habitat for wildlife.  The carving at the top is like a wind snapped tree, the clean cuts will weather down steadily.  More about Beech trees if you click here.info
