Sessile oak close to Pontfadog in Glyntraian

There was one sessile oak (Quercus petraea) close to Pontfadog in Glyntraian (county of Clwyd). This tree doesn't exist anymore today.

This tree is called "Pontfadog Oak". A 18 April 2013 came this news:

"Today the 18th April 2013 The Pontfadog Oak sadly collapsed at 02:20am due to high winds. Rob McBride Tree hunter."

And a mail from David Alderman, director of the Tree Register:

"Not sure if you have heard but the champion Pontfadog Oak fell over in strong winds last night. The Woodland Trust press release has just gone out live.

Here is the link: http://www.woodlandtrust.presscentre.com/News-Releases/Wales-loses-its-oldest-oak-tree-the-Pontfadog-Oak-de3.aspx

Please circulate to others who may be interested. Jeroen Pater and Krystov I am sure visited the tree.

Regards

200613.38 m?Jeroen Pater-
2007?12.90 mDavid Alderman, director of The Tree Register-

The growth rate shown in the table shows the yearly average increase in girth since the last measurement. This value only gives an indication of the growth rate, since every measurement could be done at slightly different heights and during different periods of the year. Its height is around 11.00 m (2006, clinometer or tangent style (laser) hypsometer (e.g. Forestor Vertex), Jeroen Pater). This tree was planted around the year 1200 ± 200, which makes it around 814 ± 200 years old (Jeroen Philippona, Apr 19, 2013).
