Those trees that stand out
Breconshire results to John Crellin please
Almost certainly planted but there are often trees in a landscape that stand out as specimens worthy of note.
Here the request is for photographs of candidates. If you know or think you know what the tree is then by all means let us know.
Results: A picture please and also they type of tree - ideally Species but maybe just the Genus (eg Poplar) or even "don't know". So send me a leaf (or photograph of each side).
Do consider reporting the tree on the Ancient Tree Inventory at the Woodland Trust.
Some examples of what we are looking for:
Black Poplar near Builth
Sweet Chestnut near Glangrwyney
Beech on Brechfa Common (now gone!)
