NotesMagnificent, but in a way a pest because Turkey Oaks host gall wasps that are affecting English Oaks.  Introduced in the 16th century in an experiment to replace the dwindling stocks of English Oak timber for warships and houses, but the timber was found to be unsuitable.  As they grew more quickly than English Oaks, they were planted as specimen trees.  More about Turkey Oaks at the Woodland Trust.info
