The oak is the wooden tie between heaven and earth. It is the lynch pin of the British landscape.’ John Lewis-Stempel

The oak has roots that stretch back to all the old European cultures but Britain has more ancient oaks than all the other European countries put together. John Lewis-Stempel considers the life-cycle of the oak, the oak as medicine, food and drink, and the tree’s role in folklore, myth and legend.
