The Capon Tree


The Capon Tree, estimated to be at least 500 years, is a Sessile Oak (Quercus petraea), and one of the few remaining trees from the ancient Jed Forest, the existence of which was first noted in 1317. It is a Heritage Tree and Tree of National Special interest in the Ancient Tree Inventory of the Woodland Trust, listed as one of Great Britain’s 50 greatest trees by The Tree Council, and recognised as an important historic tree by the Borders Forest Trust. 

There is no parking directly next to The Capon Tree, but can be walked to from the main town.
