NotesThe quintessential tree of England, even the National Trust has it as its emblem.  Planted over centuries for their timber which was used for ship building and house frames.  Oaks support more other species, insects, birds, mammals and fungi, than any other UK tree.  
This large tree sits on an old hedge bank and is about 400 years old.
