  • This oak is a stump, once sawn off, which retained bark and cambium on one side, from which new stems arose as from a large coppice stool. How to measure its girth? If we did it at the base, why not there with all trees? At. 1.30 m at the sawn level does not seem correct either; the bole was burred before it lost its bark. Perhaps somewhere in-between these extremes would give a less biased girth (but I did not do it when I visited). Aljos Farjon
