Product details

Very long-lived its hard timber has been used to produce the finest furniture from ships through to coffins.

Many superb specimens of Quercus Robur exist in our countryside but perhaps the most famous is the Major Oak in Sherwood Forest which is estimated to be some 1000 years old and weigh over 23 tonnes. Whether Robin Hood actually took refuge in it is of debate!

Quercus robur is a large imposing broadly oval oak tree heavy-limbed and long-lived.

Its deeply grained bark gives year-round appeal and its expansive root system does best on deep heavy soils.

A wonderful choice for parkland and large estates it is also good in avenues and wide verges.

The English Oak Tree is a great host for supporting wildlife and its acorns are hidden and distributed by forgetful Jays.

Given the right conditions one can expect between three and four summer flushes of growth.
