Blenheimís ancient oak.

Blenheim Palace

Ancient trees are those with a girth of at least five metres.
Blenheim Park has 291 Ė 220 of these are in High Park, and 71 are elsewhere in Blenheim,
one is estimated to be 1050 years old!

Conservation charity the Woodland Trust is challenging people across the UK to find and map ancient trees,
after its Ancient Tree Inventory project helped confirm the biggest collection of ancient oak trees in Europe

Amazing that this tree is able to survive when it’s like this.Actually saw this very tree just a few days ago on an old episode of ‘Escape to the country ‘.

This is an impressive shot of an impressive tree. A venerable tree in fact. I'd heard about the tree mapping project and think it a brilliant idea. V
