Dzenīšu (Woodpeckers’) Willow

The thickest white willow (Salix alba) in Latvia and, presumably, in the Baltics. The girth of the tree trunk at a height of 0.5 meters from the ground has already reached 10 meters. Its height reaches 21 meters. Willow is more than 100 years old, as it is reported that it was planted around 1880 by Blūms, the owner of the “Blumcikuži” house, to mark the border of his land. There is a small information stand nearby. The willow can be reached by a trail that starts at the Raganu cliffs.
