Fenland Black Oak - 5000 year old tree found in Norfolk



The trunk of a giant oak tree, thought by experts to be more than 5,000 years old, has been unearthed in a field in Norfolk.

The 44ft (13.4m) Fenland Black Oak, or bog oak, was found buried in farmland at Methwold Hythe, near Downham Market.

Planks cut from the trunk will be dried over seven months in a specialist kiln.

A spokesman said the tree would make "a breathtaking table for public display giving an insight into the grandeur of these ancient giant forests"


I'm not sure if they mean that the tree was 5000 years old when it was buried, or if it was buried 5000 years ago. But it's making me more hopeful that my hugelkulture beds are gonna last a while!
