'Pheonix' Scots Pine

2007|Veteran and Ancient Trees 2

A remarkable Scots Pine can be seen 15m to the right of the descending path. It is an example of a 'pheonix' tree: one which, having fallen over, remained rooted and as it continued to grow, produced new trees along its trunk. In this way, one tree becomes four.
