Holm Oak  Quercus ilex  Find it on BristolTrees

Submitted by Jim Smith

This is one of the few remaining large trees from the old Filwood area, pre-development. If it was removed, it would be a great loss to the community, apart from its environmental usefulness! It has a hollow cavity, at the back, out of sight. It has extensive charring of the heartwood, due to fire, or fires, that have been ignited by `persons unknown`, inside the cavity!
The tree is protected by a Tree Preservation Order - TPO-360-T1
