Wet Autumn Leaves

oak trees

shade, fire resistant, stately

Having seen some magnificent oak specimens at the royal botanical gardens  and mature english oak specimens doing well on  farms  in our region , we decided to put in some interesting species. We started in 2020 with a daimyo or japanese oak and now have almost 30 different trees, including a truffleised holm oak and cork oaks. Sturdy mesh enclosures are needed as the sheep love eating them, eventually we will be able to remove the tree guards as sheep dont damage tree trunks.
