The story

Elm’s Strength – The Traitor Tree and the Crooked Elm: could the tree used for torture in 1814 be the same tree that died of old age in the 1940s? Many tales abound about the Crooked Elm, a Longwoods Road landmark. Less is known about the Traitor Tree near Strathburn where George Ward was strung up by the Americans to glean information about British troops.
