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
