Veteran Tree Care in North Tyne

This veteran Horse Chestnut tree was planted to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee in 1897.

Wark Forest Landscapes were asked by the Parish Council to undertake a detailed tree inspection in 2011 as its condition appeared to be in decline.

Pruning of deadwood and also some of the major defective limbs and an overall crown reduction were specified and the work was carried out in early spring, 2012. With the risk of falling limbs now mitigated, the tree was safe for Wark village to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012. It was used as a historical center piece, with many of the day’s celebrations taking place around it. The tree is now 115 years old. Whilst not ancient, it is still considered a veteran due to its history and condition.
