Okay its a guess the 100 years but i can prove there 89 years old.

This came about by shear coincidence. ( You will like it )
First i curiously wondered if these trees were Old and Took a Picture.




Then i looked on at the 1929 : The World Jamboree of Boy Scouts Click Me

Ive added an Arrow in the picture center pointing to 2 trees
just off the main bunch. Could it be the same trees?



Best Zoom I can do..



Then Chriskay sent me this picture of his Grand Parents from 1920 - 30
Next to those same trees. Wow what a coincidence...



Even in the early 1900's those trees are a good size already.
You can see the spooky looking tree.

I've seen a picture of my folk's road from the 20's and all the trees are little saplings. They're huge now!

Some trees in arrowe park could easily be more than 150 years old ....

Arrowe Park covers approximately 425 acres and was originallyowned by John Ralph Shaw who, between 1835 and 1844, built an Elizabethan-style mansion - called Arrowe Hall. It was extended twice between 1864 and 1876 with the addition of a billiards room and a conservatory.

At about that time, the property was handed down to Captain Otho Shaw whose main interest was travelling the World. As a result, the Hall became virtually a private museum to house items he had collected during his travels. His collection included a fine collection of glass and pottery more than 2000 years old which came from the Tombs of Cyprus and a carved oak bedroom suite made in York in 1684.

At one time, the Arrowe Estate came into the ownership of Lord Leverhulme and from him to Birkenhead Corporation who bought all 425 acres in 1927.

Are they the ones who built a car park on it?

There is a mathmatical formula for working out the age of a tree without having to cut it down. It's based upon the genus of tree i.e. whether it is classed as a slow, medium or fast grower.

Rate of growth refers to the vertical increase in growth unless specified differently. Rate, as is true for size, is influenced by numerous variables such as soil, drainage, water, fertility, light, exposure, ad infinitum.

The designation slow means the plant grows 12” or less per year; medium refers to 13 to 24” of growth per year; and fast to 25” or greater.

I really should get out more raftl

Those tree might be good contenders for this project-

The Woodland Trust - Ancient Tree Hunt

Also the big old oak tree in the field near to where the RC planes are is quite impressive. Maybe we should start a hunt on wiki for old trees of Wirral??
