The 2000 year old coppiced lime tree

Located in the Westonbirt Arboretum is a Lime tree that is over 2000 years old and that managed to reach its respectable age by a 25-year-coppice cycle. The picture above is all one tree. I Learned about this via Rob Penn's current BBC4 program Tales from the Wild Wood in which he takes under his care a neglected Welsh woodland.
