Pepperwell Oak

This massive pedunculate or English oak (Quercus robur) stands in the private grounds of historic Methven Castle. It is an imposing specimen with a trunk diameter of 228cm and a girth of 23ft 6in, and reaches a height of 23.8m / 78ft. Clearly several centuries old, this tree has been well known in the area since the nineteenth century and is a good example of a "named" tree. Such trees often appear on old maps and are well known local landmarks and features. This fine specimen still enjoys good health and looks set to be around for a few more centuries yet.
