Tree Information x

Identifier: AR/1335
Tree Type: Single
Registered By: Cadwallader, B.G.
Registration Category: Notable tree – National interest
General Notes:
A rare and impressive single-stemmed specimen of exceptional height. It is not clear why it has not branched as is typical for the species. Branching usually begins after the tree flowers so maybe this has never occurred with this tree (Cadwallader, B.G., 2015).
