Mulberry - The lighthouse of the history
Species: White mulberry (Morus alba)
Age: 200 years
Region: Senica, Trnava region, Slovakia
The mulberry is one of the most beautiful and oldest trees in Senica. Nowadays it is rare to see such a massive mulberry and certainly not in the city centre. This magnificent and majestic tree looks down patiently at a world that is constantly changing. Once upon a time the tree grew on the quiet periphery of the city, today it is surrounded by a busy block of flats where generations of children have grown up. Residents of Senica call this mulberry ‘the lighthouse of the history’, full of peace and patience in these hectic times.
