Is it known why there a batbox on the trunk of this tree? There are several holes in the tree for bats to use. Bats prefer to use those instead this manmade structure.

Greetings, Martin

I expect one of the managers at the Center Parcs holiday village thought it would be a good idea to stick some boxes up. You see them all over the place (the boxes, not the bats).

Can you add a photo of the foliage, please? From what is visible of the leaves here, I suspect this tree may be the natural hybris Quercus × rosacea (hybrid between Q. robur and Q. petraea).

It's really strange how many branches come off the main trunk and reach up to the light.There like flailing arms, reaching up to daylight. And not many trees can grow to 5.47m and have so many branches in a shady wood! I must see this tree!

It looks like all braches are attached at the same height. This might mean that this tree once has bene pollarded. And it alos seems that most of the other trees arounf are much younger. So it might not suprise me that this area once has been a wood pasture. Wood pasture contains a mix of young mature trees, often pollards standing in open grassland or heathland, this type of habitat has been created by land use going back thousands of years, the grassland would be grazed and the trees or pollards harvested for timber.

But most important: the wood looks much younger as this tree, wich might explain how this tree could devellop in such a manner in what looks like a shady wood.
