NotesEd's favourite tree. Knowle Tree Survey number 40 listed as a Lucombe Oak (a hybrid between Turkey Oak and Cork Oak) but this is unlikely because this tree is not fully evergreen.  It does have leaves similar to a Lucombe Oak and so it might be from an acorn from the original Lucombe Oak which has bred almost true.  With a girth of 5.6m the Forestry Commission calculator puts this tree at between 300 and 350 years old but the species was only introduced 280 years ago, which means this tree has grown more quickly than a normal Turkey Oak.  More about Turkey Oaks here.info
