TALLEST PINE TREE IN THE CENTRAL EUROPE
The tallest pine tree got its name after the Sgerm farm that lies in the Zgornja Orlica
Village in the Municipality Ribnica na Pohorju.
The magnificent pine tree is the tallest in Slovenia and Central Europe, and the most
glorious example of the natural heritage in Slovenia.
With its greatness and vitality, it spreads its seeds in its surroundings and builds
the future of the forest.
The view is breath-taking.
