Superbe arbre, j'aime bien son tronc.

It has a very unusual trunk; it looks very squat yet quite broad. Has it lost its top part? They are wonderful trees; far better than those foreign invaders.
Chris: I think it is in the process of reinventing iitself

What a wonderful tree, a fine specimen of an English tree, what might be the difference to the German tree, a national tree, too? I assume that the sheep will be seeking for a shade under this tree due to the high noon heat.
Chris: This tree will be a friend of the sheep on hot sunny days
Stumpy the oak tree
Chris: I think if he had a name it would be more dignified than Stumpy..

Good to celebrate our fine tees, Chris
Chris: Very important Lisl
Wow. This large old tree has stories to tell. We have some English oak brought here to the island by a fellow who worked in Kew Gardens in the 1800's
Chris: And one day they might look like this one
It almost looks ready to get up and go
Chris: There's probably a few decades left in it Martin..
Oak trees are beautiful, the area I live in is full of them all over the place.
Chris: Aren't they good

What a wonderful tree, I love its spiralling bark patterns
Chris: Terrific isn't it Anne, perhaps to do with great age?
What a gorgeous old thing! Lovely comp, Chris!
Chris: Thank you very much!
We have got woods of ancient oaks in Suffolk
Chris: Maybe I have seen some of them?
