Campus Nature Trail

Point 1

point-01 oak

This is one of the finest trees on campus.

Its identity has always been a source of debate for it has both sessile (stalkless) and pedunculate (stalked) acorns as well as leaves sharing features of both Sessile and Pedunculate Oaks.

At the moment we are calling it a hybrid Quercus x rosacea.

Measurements suggest that it is around 150 years old.

See further information on oak.
