Pedunculate oak in Sherwood Forest in Edwinstowe

There is one pedunculate oak (Quercus robur) in Sherwood Forest in Edwinstowe (county of Nottinghamshire).

This tree, called The Major Oak is a huge oak tree near the village of Edwinstowe in the heart of Sherwood Forest in England. According to local folklore, it was Robin Hood's shelter where he and his men slept.

Since the Victorian era its massive limbs have been partially supported by an elaborate system of scaffolding.

Its height is around 16.00 m (Aug 1, 2009, measurement method unknown, Jeroen Philippona).
