English Oak

acorn

Did you know I didn’t until I read it on line, acorns are not produced until the tree is at least 40 years old. September and the acorns are now well formed but still green in colour.. Bowthorpe Oak in Bourne, Lincolnshire,  is said to be England’s oldest oak tree with an estimated age of over 1,000 years. This baby Oak is in Wales, but due to the acorns must be over 40.
