Colour photograph showing Pencoed pollarded oak tree, Felindre, taken in December 2021 by David Leighton. The tree is a short-boled Oak with a multi-stem crown and is located at a point on the boundary between the modern communities of Llanilid and Coychurch. The boundary between the demesne lordship of Ruthin and the lordship of Coity to the west also coincides at this point. The tree, or a predecessor hereabouts, may therefore have medieval significance.
