Pleidleisiwch dros y dderwen / Vote for Pwllpriddog oak

I bleidleisio, ewch i’r linc ar waelod  –  To Vote, go to the link at the bottom

Pwllpriddog Oak, Rhandirmwyn, Blaenau Tywi

Coeden Gymreig y Flwyddyn, 2018  /  Woodland Trust – Tree of the Year, 2018

Standing in a hedgerow just outside the quiet village of Rhandirmwyn in Carmarthenshire, this tree is a giant, with a girth of some 8.4 metres. Some have estimated it to be 600-700 years old, while local historians believe it was planted to commemorate the Battle of Bosworth. It is reputed to have been the hiding place of a king; the local pub is known as the Royal Oak, after all.

The tree is hollow, and there are a number of YouTube clips of bands and choirs singing inside it.

Many years ago it is understood to be a meeting place for local lovers. The farm used it as the shelter for the pig and now the ducks from the current owner roost and hatch in the branches.
