In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, we learn about the Beauly Elm, a gnarly looking elm tree rumored to be older than Britain itself. The tree was the anchor in a community—until beetles got to it, and it was suddenly gone one day. Thanks to the magic of technology, you can see a 3D scan of the Beauly Elm here.

Our podcast is an audio guide to the world’s wondrous, awe-inspiring, strange places. In under 15 minutes, we’ll take you to an incredible site, and along the way you’ll meet some fascinating people and hear their stories. Join us daily, Monday through Thursday, to explore a new wonder with cofounder Dylan Thuras and a neighborhood of Atlas Obscura reporters.
