QR – Cure – Quizzing Realms – 228

A slightly difficult one for the day.
What is the claim to fame of this tree? And by what name is it referred to now? Interesting info: it’s exact location is not disclosed to ward off any vandals that might want to deface it.
Happy quizzing, and have a nice life folks. And Happy New Year, too!
