Bowthorpe_Oak

The Bowthorpe Oak, Manthorpe, England, 2002.

With a circumference of 40 feet, this mighty oak competes with Majesty for the title of largest girthed living British oak. It is perhaps the oldest oak tree, estimated to be around 1,200 years old, give or take a century. More of Moon’s work can be seen in her book ““Ancient Trees: Portraits of Time”.
