NotesOne of our native oaks but much less common than the English Oak. The girth of 120cm gives an approximate age of 50 years which means the tree was planted at about the time the estate was sold to the Urban District Council.  The name sessile refers to the acorns which do not have a stalk, those of the English Oak are on long stalks.
