De Fin Oak, Stutterheim, Border, Eastern Cape.

This tree was planted in 1838 and was named after pioneer forester Baron Johan de Fin in 1934. De fin fought to have the Amatola forests protected by closing them to illegal woodcutters, but was unable to pursuade the Cape Government to act. Only once he had retired was the wisdom of his campaign appreciated. Stutterheim is on the N6 northeast of East London, which is at the intersection of the N2 with the N6. AGDefin
