What a wonderful tree. Never been there myself so I had to look it up.

"The Major Oak is a large English oak (Quercus robur) near the village of Ejohndwinstowe in the midst of Sherwood Forest, Nottinghamshire, England. According to local folklore, it was Robin Hood's shelter where he and his merry men slept. It weighs an estimated 23 tons, has a girth of 33 feet (10 metres), a canopy of 92 feet (28 metres), and is about 8001000 years old. In a 2002 survey, it was voted "Britain's favourite tree". In 2014, it was voted 'England's Tree of the Year' by a public poll by the Woodland Trust, receiving 18% of the votes. Its name originates from Major Hayman Rooke's description of it in 1790."

I hope you don't mind me posting this.
