In the village of São Bartolomeu dos Galegos, Portugal, is an ancient Common Ash (Fraxinus excelsior). This old, now fragile tree is next to an old convent church, about 200 meters away from the village's main church.

The Common Ash in São Bartolomeu dos Galegos is precious. Its girth, measured at a height of 1.30 meters, is an impressive 13 meters. The tree has a height of approximately 12 meters.

What makes this particular Common Ash even more remarkable is its age. According to locals, this majestic tree germinated or was planted around the year 1156, with an estimated margin of error of ±100 years. This makes the tree approximately 870 years old.

The tree serves as a symbol of the village's rich heritage and beauty.
