Sir Isaac Newton’s apple tree felled by gravity in Storm Eunice



Newton’s ‘apple tree’ at Cambridge University was broken by the tempest

Cambridge University Botanic Garden has lost its “Newton’s apple tree” to Storm Eunice.

Garden caretaker Dr Samuel Brockington said the tree was planted in 1954 and had remained at the Brookside entry of the botanic nursery for 68 years.

He said the tree was cloned from the one that drove Sir Isaac Newton to find the laws of gravity.

The botanic nursery said it had a clone of the tree that would be established somewhere else in the nursery soon.

The unique tree from which an apple fell, driving Newton to devise his hypothesis of gravity, is at Woolsthorpe Manor in Grantham, Lincolnshire.

Even however it was blown over in a hurricane in the nineteenth Century, the tree made due and throughout the long term has been spread by joining, which includes restricting one of the shoots on to another sapling.

Dr Brockington said investigation showed three trees in Cambridge – including the one at the botanic nursery – were a clone of Newton’s unique apple tree.

He said despite the fact that it was a “pitiful misfortune” that it had fallen in Friday’s tempest, they knew it was “on out” because of honey fungus.

As an outcome, they had as of now begun their own clone of the tree, so “through the amazing study of uniting, our scion [cutting] of ‘Newton’s Apple Tree’ will ideally go on in our assortments “, he said.
