Champion Tree in Bloom

Our champion native wild cherry tree (Prunus Avium) may be almost 270 years old but it still puts on an impressive display when in bloom, which it is at the moment.

The tree is almost 70 ft in height (20m) and when the sunlight catches the blossom, it really seems to glow!

Our Champion Prunus Avium

The tree forms a part of the drive leading to Croan House and Cottages and we suspect that Cherry may have been inter-planted with the Lime Trees when they were planted in 1743. This specimen is the only Blossom tree remaining now.
