Oaks of Puszcza Bialowieska by Tomasz Niechoda. http://www.deby.bialowieza.pl/index.php5 The Bialowieza Forest is the biggest tree(of monumental sizes) cluster in Europe. Among the trees growing there the biggest sizes are reached by oaks and this site is dedicated to them. The Bialowieza Oaks impress with soaring shape, habit diversity, majesty & age. The oldest ones sprouted in the times of Władysław Jagiełło, and maybe even of Kazimierz Wielki. They are parts of the Bialowieza Forest - world-class humankind heritage - and that's why it is worth documenting their lasting. Language: Polish, English. Country: Portugal..

Bartek Oak - Poland http://www.purpleslinky.com/Trivia/Hist ... rld.139165 One of the most famous trees of Poland is the Bartek Oak. It is 625 year-old and has a height of 30-meter tall and measures 13.5 meters in girth at its base. Its crown spreads about 40 meters. Under the Bartek oak tree, King Casimir III is known to have been pictured as holding his court. It is also told that Jan III Sobieski rested under this tree on his way back from the Battle of Vienna, and hid a Turkish saber, an arquebus and a bottle of wine inside it. The old oak is in decline.
