The Our Lady Tree of Lummen
Species: European Beech (Fagus sylvatica)
Age: Unknown
Region: Lummen, Province of Limburg, Belgium
A place of worship and community
This monumental red beech stands on a high mound in a protected park behind the Our Lady chapel in the village of Lummen. In the early 17th century, an old beech had a statue of Mary that was worshipped. When the statue mysteriously vanished in 1641, a chapel was built and the original tree cut down. The faithful took pieces of the tree as relics and the wood was used to carve images of Mary. The current tree stands in the proud tradition of its ancestor.
