I took this photo of a notable oak during one of my daily walks. From the line at bench height, it looks as though it was constrained at some point; perhaps there was a bench around the trunk. Does anyone know the history of this tree or have earlier photos?
I would need assistance to measure the trunk, so that will have to wait until the rules on social distancing are relaxed.
