This Oak is about 150 years old and is one of my favourites. It reminds me of the big Fig trees you have in Brazil!

Greeting from England, Ian

Hello Ian! My compliments for your beautiful and incredible gallery! On this fantastic photo the tree is a weeping beech, a "fagus sylvatica, pendula". I'm not a botanist, but I took a photo in to his metal plate. If you are interested, the exact location of this tree is near the Princess of Wales Conservatory. Bye, Mike

Hi Michele, thank you for your visit and the wonderful comments on my gallerey. This Oak is about 100 metres north east of the very beautiful weeping Beech you mention. This is the famous Weeping Beech in Knaphill, Surrey Best wishes, Ian

HEllo Ian! You're right! I was wrong: this is just an Oak! A beautiful oak! (:-) The beech tree near the Princess of Wales greenhouse has a foliage like this oak, but has a different bark, and a more larger trunk. Best Wishes, Mike

Excluding Northern Ireland, I call the U.K. the Oak's Island! If you want, look this oak and this alien, near the Kew Palace!! Ciao by Mike!
