The Tokstad pine tree (Tokstadfurua) is situated at Prestvegen (the priest´s road) and dates from 1516.
This means that it was already a small tree when the reformation came to Norway in 1537 and pilgrimages were prohibited. The tree has been an official Pilgrims Pine, and every year there is a special pilgrimage from the Veldre Church to the pine where a church service is held. This tree was originally granted protection back in 1918. The pine is situated on the ground of Tokstad farm.
