Turkey Oak

The 4.3 Metre Oak had flatish acorns which I found on the ground.

Size and WDVTA

A diameter of 4.3m would make this substantially the largest Holm Oak in the country. According to the Wokingham District Veteran Tree Association it has a girth of 6.90m measured at a height of 0.5m - see http://www.wdvta.org.uk/WDVTS/index.php and search for tree 4642.
