A magnificent and beautiful tree, the English or Pedunculate Oak (Quercus robur) reaches 10ft within 10 years. It is easy to grow and produces the classic shaped leaf and acorns. Often referred to as the "King of the Trees" as is a much loved symbol of strength and duration. In folklore the Oak was sacred to Greek, Roman and Celtic gods who had the power over thunder and lightning so was no coincidence that the Oak (being often the highest tree) would be struck by thunder and lightning.
The Quercus robur makes the perfect gift for a memorial, wedding or anniversary. The current height of the tree is 40-60cm and it can be planted year round.
With each tree gift, your tree is presented in a jute drawstring bag with your own personal message and planting instructions.
