Classic Trunk no 1

Our first 'trunk' really captures a bit of the spirit of the wonderful place we are lucky enough to call home.

Location: B3197 just shy of A381 intersection, near Kingsbridge, south Devon 
Species: Feels like a wonderful mongrel of willow, ash, birch, tamarisk and triffid – the truth is we don’t know, but if you do, please let on
Height: 30ft up and 40ft out (they’re growing at 45 degrees)
Appearance: Nosferatu and his shadow on a quiet lane home
Age at a guess: Old enough to get a pension, but best ask the roots that tether them to the ground
Song that springs to mind: Blowin’ in the wind
