Enfield Council is trying to save one of London's oldest trees from dying. The 800 year old Minchenden Oak in Southgate dates from the time of the ancient Forest of Middlesex.
The tree has begun to subside and could pose a threat to nearby homes. It has extensive internal decay despite earlier attempts to stop it spreading.
