Big Tree Seating
OAS PROJECT TO PROVIDE REPLACEMENT ‘Big Tree’ Seating

The sad story of the demise of ‘Big Tree’in 1997 is well known. Despite the efforts of the Old Almondburians’ Society, who had received assurances from tree experts that with judicious pruning the tree was ‘good for many more years’, the tree was felled without prior discussion. For well over a century, the ancient sycamore, with its slatted hexagonal seating, had provided welcome lunchtime shade overlooking the ‘bunk’.

The OAS has pledged to provide replacement  stone seating around the base of an existing tree not far from the location of Big Tree, at a cost of around £5,000.

Contributions from OAS members will be greatly appreciated, and the names of donors will be recorded on a plaque to be located on the base of the structure.
