NZ2914 : Quercus cerris

taken 10 months ago, near to Darlington, England

Quercus cerris
Quercus cerris
Quercus cerris, the Turkey oak or Austrian oak, a non-native species introduced around 1700 from Southern Europe.

This fine example is growing in the churchyard of St Cuthbert's parish church, a space with many splendid specimen trees. See also NZ2914 : Hairy Acorns.
Trees and their trunks

There are many guides to tree identity on the web. But few concentrate upon the bark, the trunks, rather than leaves and blossom, and fruits. So this collection will do what it can to improve representation of the lower structures.
