About The Big Tree
The Big Tree in the Tsitsikamma stretches its distinctive yellowwood leaves skywards, towering over the other trees in the canopy. This tree is estimated to be between 600 and 800 years old, and stands 36,6 m tall with a trunk circumference of 9m. A lengthy and comfortable boardwalk path leads visitors through the dappled light of the lush, cool forest. In Knysna an entire industry sprang up around the beautiful yellowwood trees in the forests of the Tsitsikamma until South Africa's national tree became an endangered species. Visiting these rare giants is definitely worth a trip. The trail is free and open all year round. The well signposted path to the big tree is just west of the Paul Sauer Bridge on the N2.
