Grandpa, the Giant Eucalyptus... in video


We have already seen in this blog some images of the Giant Eucalyptus of Spain & Portugal. And while telling the story of these giant eucalypts we had mentioned that among those at Souto da Retorta (Lugo, Spain) tradition marks one of them, O Avó de Chavín (The Grandfather), as the main shrine of a magical place.

wow, just the picture alone is amazing---i would assume that the one in the picture is at best 100 yrs. old and probably less????

Not easy to know with certainty because the 600 giants in that place were planted in several moments from sometime in the 1880's to 1912, but this tree is one of the eldest, somewhere between 115 and 130 years old.
