    • Hi Peter. Considering the location of the tree, it probably had a fantastic view of the fjord and the magnificent ships of the Vikings ❤
      Well what a thrill to sit under the oak back then 🙂
      Stay safe!!

    • Hi Tanja. The tree witnessed the sailing of the Viking ship The Sea Stallion from Glendalough on Roskilde fjord.
      It is estimated that the tree stood on a meadow by itself due to its height and thickness: 14 meters in circumference and 17 meters high.
      The Vikings used oak for their ships 😐
      The tree is still alive but weak.
      All the best,

      • King Oak can rightly retire, Tanja 🙂
        The succession is secured through a successful inoculation.
        The new fine oak tree is 9.2 meters high and the circumference is 1.22 meters. It was planted in November 1986. The name is Danneregen
        I wonder what the world is like in 4.020? 🤞

    • Hi Linda. They are fascinating in their expression, the old trees. I totally agree.
      Imagine if we could stream all the years right from our time reckoning. Both interesting and scary at the same time.
      An alternative would be a skilled historian 🙂
      All the best,
