The trunk cavity on hollow oaks are very rich in beetles and other insects. The fungi are important in the cavity formation. Many sites with the oldest trees have an age gap to next generation of oaks. One famous example in Sweden is the nature reserve Halltorps hage.

The biggest area with old hollow oaks in the world (and with highest density of trees)? 5000 hectare and >50 000 oaks. All active managed by nomads pollarding the trees for giving fodder to their goats (photo: Deniz Özüt and me from a visit in May 2019)

Lovely open grown Scots pine - hope management can perpetuate this open growth form, not just for this tree but for next generation. Also maintain the heritage of pollarding as historic practice that gives us important evidence from the past

An absolute cracker of a veteran lime pollard in the churchyard of St Mary's, Berkeley. This would have been known to doctor Edward Jenner, pioneer of vaccination, who lived and died next door and was buried here in 1823.

I never tire of the magnificent Oak Trees in North West England - they seem to hang on to their leaves much longer than some other trees and they always look so stately - love trees so much

In addition to having great ecology, old sycamores often have wonderfully interesting and engaging trunks. This is the convoluted base of the tree from my previous post.
