Hi Giuseppe

This is a Lucombe Oak & is a Healing Tree

The original Lucombe Oak was created in 1762 by Mr William Lucombe, of St Thomas, Exeter. He cross-pollinated a Turkey Oak (Quercus cerris) with a Cork Oak (Quercus suber). There are examples of Lucombe Oaks in Devon and at Kew Gardens and Keele University.

Mr Lucombe felled the original tree in 1785 and stored planks from it under his bed with the aim of making his coffin from them later. However, he lived to the remarkable age of 102, and when the planks were retrieved from under his bed after his death they were found to have decayed.

Excellent shot studio4t1!

What kind is this tree - is it really healing?

Many greetings from Bulgaria!

It's a Lucombe Oak . The original Lucombe Oak was created in 1762 by Mr William Lucombe, of St Thomas, Exeter. He cross-pollinated a Turkey Oak (Quercus cerris) with a Cork Oak (Quercus) This is believed to be a cutting from the origional and yes it is called the Healing tree.
