Wales Tree of the Year 2020

Our Chapter House Tree crowned Wales Tree of the Year 2020...

Woodland Trust Coed Cadw's annual competition, now in its seventh year, throws the spotlight on Wales' best loved trees.

Nominated by David Elward, our Chapter House Tree won the shortlist in a public vote.

The historic fern-leaved beech envelopes the remains of one of the first Cistercian abbeys established in Wales. With an impressive canopy, the tree has provided shelter to visitors for many years - from Victorian tea parties taking place under its sweeping boughs to a favourite summer picnic spot for present day visitors.

The tree provides an atmospheric back-drop and is loved by cinematographers having featured in TV and Film productions from Dr Who and Songs of Praise with Sir Bryn Terfel to the recent Netflix blockbuster series Sex Education.
