today's tree

A descendant of the Royal Oak at Boscobel House, Shropshire, England, in which the future Charles II hid in 1651 after the Battle of Worcester. The image is one of the finalists in a contest run by the Woodland Trust to find this year’s best tree, out of more than 200 nominations.

  1. This is beautiful! And I thought, that tree looks familiar...Sure enough, I'd met it before, or at least its photograph, in Thomas Pakenham's Meetings with Remarkable Trees. I hope it wins!

  2. Oh you are a marvel, Theresa. Of course I should have known you'd have met this tree!!
