A Canal-Adjoining Majestic Giant Redwood: A Leading Contender For The Tree Of The Year Title

Glandwr Cymru – the Canal & River Trust in Wales – is encouraging people to vote for its Giant Redwood, which has made it to the final of Wales’ ’Tree of the Year’ competition.

The Giant Redwood stands on the banks of the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, near Llangattock.

It is thought to be over 150 years old and at 126 feet tall is higher than the famous Pontcysyllte Aqueduct near Wrexham (or twice as tall as the average rugby goal post).

Kevin Phillips, Glandwr Cymru waterway supervisor, said: “The Giant Redwood is such a majestic tree, it’s got a bit of fairy tale quality about it. You could almost imagine it having a door in its trunk which you can step through it into another world! It’s certainly very popular amongst everyone who visits the canal. As a charity we get a lot of help from a local group – the Llangattock Woodland Group – to look after the canal and the surrounding wildlife and they’ve done a huge amount of work to clear a nice route to the tree, so that people can enjoy it. I’d encourage anybody who loves the tree or the canal to get behind us and get voting.”
