The story of this tree is a story of a true friend. A friend who has stood for decades as a brave fighter, and a guardian of the people from the village of Archar. The plane is part of their life - an everyday witness of local events, an observer of activities organised by the Community Centre. Every year it greets first graders who enter the local school and bids goodbye to the graduating students. On Sundays it casts its friendly shadow over visitors to the weekly market. It attends the traditional "Ilinden" Archar Fair as a most renowned guest and also takes part in all festive events.
