Seven months after one of Wales' most iconic oak trees, the Pontfadog Oak was blown down in a storm, one of its neighbours, the Oak at the Gate of the Dead, in the Ceiriog Valley has been entered into the European Tree of the Year Award.
It's the first time a Welsh tree has been nominated in the competition which aims to find the most beautiful and rarest of trees, with a story that can bring a community together.
The tree is believed to be around 1,000 years old and it stands at Castle Mill near Chirk.
