Pedunculate Oak

Native Irish tree, reaching heights of 35 to 50 metres. This oak can be somewhat slow growing, but makes up for it in its longevity, with the potential to reach ages of several hundred years, and upwards of a thousand years on occasion. This beautiful tree supports a wide variety of insect life, helping to boost the biodiversity of an area. It also produces excellent timber, which has been widely utilised in the construction of ships, churches and barrels for wine and whiskey.
