An oak tree in the Ceiriog Valley near Llangollen, thought to be the oldest in the UK, is being chopped up.
Coed Cadw - the Welsh arm of the woodland conservation charity The Woodland Trust - says the Pontfadog Oak was believed to be the oldest in Wales.
It toppled over in April after heavy snows and high winds hit the area.
The charity says legend has it that Owain Gwynedd rallied his welsh troops under this tree in the 12th century and then went on to defeat Henry II in a great battle.
It's hoped a memorial of some kind can be created out of the trunk which is believed to be up to 1,500 years old.
Samples from the tree have been taken and cultivated by the National Botanic Garden of Wales in Carmarthenshire.
