The oak tree


The oak is famed for its capacity to live for many years.

The oaks along Fodsporet are approximately 30-40 years old. The bark of young oaks is smooth.

Only as the tree matures does the bark become furrowed, and acquire its characteristic wrinkled appearance.

The oak accommodates a wealth of insects, with more than 800 species particularly associated with the tree.
