400 year-old tree recognized as national heritage

A nearly 400 year-old cluster fig tree in the northern midland province of Phu Tho is the first to become a Vietnam Heritage Tree.

A recognition ceremony was jointly held by the Vietnam Association for Conservation of Nature and Environment (VACNE) and the local authorities of Xuan Anh commune, Ha Hoa district, on April 20.

The tree measures 5.6m in circumference, 1.65m in diameter and is more than 3m high. It has a root in the shape of a dragon drinking water.

Dr. Nguyen Ngoc Sinh, Chairman of VACNE, said that central and local authorities are now paying special attention to preserving ancient trees in Vietnam.

So far, the VACNE has received profile submissions of more than 500 trees from 28 provinces across the country. 155 of them fulfil all the requirements set by the Vietnam Heritage Tree Council.
