England still has a large number of ancient oaks, far more than any other country in Europe where Quercus robur and Q. petraea are also common. Why is this so, and what is its significance? These and many other questions interest Farjon, and in suggesting answers to them, he conducts much fascinating research into such matters as how their ages are calculated. Opens up much history.
