English oak, Quercus robur  (Fagales: Fagaceae) - 5170017

English oak
Quercus robur L.

Descriptor: Feature(s)
Description: A very strange, unexplained stem!! Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, England, UK. Not the result of a super long tree shelter! Root collar instability and total loss of apical dominance in early years may explain it? The crown was a stunted "lollipop" shape.
