Pedunculate Oak (Quercus robor) [4]

In addition to the Pedunculate Oak there is also the Sessile Oak which is very similar but is now much rarer as new trees artificially planted for the last umpteen years have usually been Pedunculates. The Sessile is a more delicate tree but the leaves and fruits are similar.

When cut the trunk reveals its age buy the number of rings you can count, tis one was about 40 years old when felled. It is also much darker in the middle.
