Congratulations to Rob McBride and the Brimmon Oak campaigners

Congratulations to the Brimmon Oak campaigners

The Brimmon Oak has been voted runner up in the European Tree of the Year contest 2017. The Welsh entry received 16,203 votes, so was not far behind the winning Polish tree which got 17,597 votes.

The Brimmon Oak, an ancient pollard, was threatened with destruction by a new bypass, but campaigners including ‘Tree Hunter’ Rob McBride managed to get the bypass re-routed.

Well done and thanks to all those readers who voted – it was very close run!!
