NTU has hatched a plan to save Britain’s oldest Bramley Apple tree.
This is situated in a garden in Church street Southwell, Notts.
The tree is dying due to a disease.
Experts believe they can treat this.
ProfRobert Mortimer of NTU Brackenhurst sit is behind this.
It is hoped that NTU will buy the cottage and look after the tree.
Staff and students will assess and tend to the tree and plant grafts at the university campus.
Thus ” the nation’s favourite cooking apple ” looks as if it is going to be protected.
Well done NTU!
