The Old Oak by Scellanis The Old Oak by Scellanis
This is the famous Old Oak in Sherwood Forest that Robin Hood used to live in or something. So old now that it needs to be supported by wooden poles and chains to stop the branches falling off.

I feel a sense of awe and wonder when I see this tree. I would love to see it in real life one day. Very good picture!

I don't think anyone has been allowed to climb that in a very long time

Actually, that's not the actual tree that Robin Hood lived in in Sherwood forest. That tree is about eight hundred years old and that is quite young for a tree like that. Back then with Robin Hood, it would've been a very little tree. Just growing that is.

If I actually read the info on it on the day I can't remember what it said now anyway so I can't remember what age the tree is either. Even if it was just a tree that was alive back then its still a pretty awesome tree to have managed to survive that long without some idiot setting fire to it, vandalising it or someone just cutting it down for wood or even the weather or animals killing it so yeah, tree still a mightily awesome tree for a tree thats so easy to get to.

Yes, that is true. Sorry for my know-it-all about Robin Hood and such. I've done a lot of research on him.

That's a cool tree! It's got a kind of "Circle of Life" look to it.

poor tree! It looks like it's being held captive, like Gulliver and the Lilliputians!

I think the branches would fall off under their own weight if it didn't have all that help...
