Ancient Oak Tree observed in Newstead Woods, Orpington. Using the method suggested on www.stuffynwood.com of girth divided by 1.25cm, this tree is approx. 254 years old. I observed green algae and moss at the base; Ivy was also present. There was also grey/green floriose lichen and grey crustose lichen. Deadwood was present on the ground but not in crow. The height of the tree was approximately 18m.
