Boom2By legend this old Bluegum tree was planted around 1865 by old Vosmerrie, the “agterryer” of the legendary Renier de Winnaar.

It seems that Vosmerrie planted the tree in the central area of Verliesfontein, the farm on which Zastron originated. He planted the tree for his boss, Renier’s horse, who needed shade while he told the children his incredible stories.

Only one of the many monuments in town which should be preserved for future generations.
