Walked past this amazing #chestnut the other day. There are several sprinkled around the area which are over 500 years old. How old would you say this one is?

@guadifor this tree looks as if it could well be 500 years old. But if you measure the girth of the tree around it’s trunk and check on google thereis a way to work it out. I am no longer sure of the formula for doing it. Loving that deep blue sky.
