A horse chestnut tree in Pentrefoelas near Betws-y-Coed is a contender for best tree in Wales.

The Woodland Trust has selected eight trees around the country, from Monmouthshire and Carmarthenshire to Mold and Llanfyllin in Powys, for the Welsh tree of the year 2014 competition it is running online.

The trust says it is all about showing that trees can be a focus for the community, as well as being part of its history.

Radio Wales' Chris Dearden went to Conwy to see if that is true.
