Trees of Henter

The oldest trees in the village of Sântimbru are in the courtyard of the Henter mansion, which also tell about our past. Historical descriptions inform us that mansions had characteristic parks. Even in this case there was a several-hectare park with ennobled plants and a fishpond around the mansion. As part of this, ash trees, locust trees and chestnuts survived.


Black locust*
(Robinia pseudacacia)
*It is located to the left of the gate (from the entrance to the mansion courtyard).


Circumference at base of the trunk

Trunk circumference at 1.30 m

Estimated age


11,10 m

3,20 m

2.86 m (diam. = 0.91 m)

175 év (Vélhetően 1848-ban ültették.)

poor, 5% defoliation, no fruiting, rot in trunk with very thick, deeply cracked rhizome, rot in some thick branches that have been cut. Also, the tip is cut off after some grooming operations.


Result obtained with the ultrasonic tomograph: the above tomograms show that this black locust has the highest percentage of healthy wood (75%). The trunk is heavily affected by rot in smaller areas (25% - 35%) in the central part, but without any gaps or bark. 

Care proposal: tree maintenance is achieved through care, especially by removing dry, decaying branches that pose a risk of breakage/fall and damage. Where the tree is in an advanced state of decline and is due for removal, replacement with seedlings of hardy ornamental tree/shrub species should be undertaken to optimize ecological, aesthetic and recreational functions.
