Other

Burr oak is rare, and its distinct grain pattern results from the growth of many small shoots from the trunk which eventually become encapsulated forming a burr or lumpy growth.

The oak tree was sacred throughout Europe, being associated with the god of thunder (Zeus to the Greeks, Tarantis to the Celts, and Thor to the Vikings). Seahenge, a 4000 year old site in on the Norfolk coast, was built from oaks.
