Bath Street’s Cedar is Frome’s favourite tree

Story posted on

The people have spoken; Frome’s Favourite Tree is the Cedar of Lebanon on Bath Street.

Frome Town Council asked the people of Frome to vote from a line-up of 10 nominated trees, which were suggested by members of the public.

Cara Naden and Clementine Conlon-Spears, from Frome Town Council gathered the votes, and said, “The gentle giant on Bath Street came out on top. It has clearly won the hearts of many in the town. Its friendly over-hanging branches offer shelter, the town centre location makes it a familiar sight to locals, and a welcoming presence to visitors as they make their way down the hill. The picture shows the Mayor of Frome, cllr Sheila Gore, demonstrating the sheer size of the tree.

“The purpose of this project was to celebrate our trees, and also to support the tree charter, which is being launched at the beginning of November.

“You can still sign the charter online at treecharter.uk or in person at the Town Hall. By simply providing your signature you are supporting trees nationwide, the planting of new woodlands and the protection of existing forests. For every person who signs, a new tree is planted somewhere in the UK.

“We’d like to say a big thank you to everybody who offered their nominations for Frome’s Favourite Tree, and also to everybody who got online and voted. It’s been uplifting to hear your heart-warming stories.”
