A very pleasing setting along a country lane for such a grand tree. It is a shame that the adjacent pine tree was planted so close, I often see this on my travels. It does them no favours at this size (as specimen trees), but I suspect at the time of planting they seemed a good distance apart. Of course the closeness of the two trees does them no harm other than to detract from their visual appeal, they are after all forest trees and in a native habitat would be growing among a good many more.
