NotesActually growing in the churchyard, Turkey Oaks have distinctive, hairy acorn cups.  
This imported species can grow to be a magnificent tree but it represents a threat to the English Oak.  It is home to a tiny gall wasp that lays its eggs in the young acorns of the English Oak.  These eggs hatch and the grub causes the acorn to grow into a knopper gall rather than an acorn.
