Long Description:

Ambrosius Eg

Nær Valdemar Slot står det 400-årige egetræ Ambrosius Egen. Det er et gigantisk træ , 20 m højt og 7,3 i omkreds. Det er opkaldt efter den danske forfatter Ambrosius Stub. Det forlyder at han ofte sad under træet mens han læste og skrev.

En udboring på træet i 1997 fastslog træets alder, men også at det er i en noget dårlig forfatning.
Selve det indre er meget medtaget af råd, hvilket bl.a.kan ses flere steder ved roden. I kronen er der endvidere svampelegemer. Skaderne er sikkert forårsaget af, at store grene er knækket af. Vand har derfor kunnet trænge ind og give råd.
