Ancient Crabapple

Ancient Crab Apple Tree

This is the first tree I ever recorded for the Ancient Tree Hunt, way back in 2007, so it is a very special tree for me. It has survived despite being totally overshadowed by the conifers which have been planted all around it and also losing a  large branch recently. At first I thought it was an old Hawthorn, but when I visited it again in the Spring, it had very pretty apple blossom on a branch that was reaching towards daylight. I have found several other old Crab Apple trees dispersed up the east side of the loch but none of them are as appealing as this one, which is short and fat and has real character.
