A Sobreira de Siador

Sobreira de Siador (“Cork Tree of Siador”) is a large evergreen green estimated to be 500 years old. After a report prepared by the local council, the resolution of June 1, 2009, by the  Directorate General for Nature Conservation of the Xunta de Galicia’s Rural Department, included it in the Galician Catalogue of Outstanding Trees.

It is the first tree in Silleda to receive this classification, which is due, according to the Evaluation Committee, to its large size, age, undeniable aesthetic value and historical and cultural significance. The presence of this unique specimen stands out in a place at the limit of its natural habitat and with a considerable age, taking into account the humanized surroundings in which it has “survived.”
