One of the most important trees that grace our countryside, it is called the king of trees and has a special place in English History, used for house building through out the centuries, it is still used today in timber framed construction, a remarkably durable timber that stands the test of time especially well, a very durable timber to make solid wood coffee tables

It was used to build the first ocean going vessels that set sail from our shores on voyages of discovery.

The importance of the Oak tree cannot simply be put into words, without its presents in the English countryside we would have never been one of the most powerful country’s in the world, the English oak certainly put great into Great Briton.
