LONDON TREES: Richmond 2

The Royal Oak of Richmond Park is a mighty fine, is a tad creepy, ancient oak tree. It might look a little worse for wear but then again, it is thought to be around 750 years of age and still going strong! It has been pollarded for centuries, a practice which helps it live longer. See below for another example of pollarding.
