The Cubbington Pear Tree
Species: Wild Pear Tree (Pyrus pyraster)
Age: 250 years old
Region: Cubbington, Warwickshire, England, UK
Believed to be over 250 years old, this beautiful tree is a local icon which has stood for generations at the top of a hill near South Cubbington Wood and is much admired by all who pass by. It is thought to be the largest wild pear tree in Warwickshire and the second largest in the United Kingdom. The tree sits on the proposed phase 1 route of the proposed new HS2 railway line from London to Birmingham and could be lost if or when construction gets underway.
