Some of you might have seen some of these before, some might not.

All in this post are oaks, and all exhibit great bonsai characteristics...

I have an Oak flickr slideshow here, and a beech one here. All of the trees on my flickr account can be seen here.

(All of the images posted above are links too, you can click them to see the relevant flickr page, from where you can view larger format images if you wish)

Hope you like them.

Yep wonderful! There's one that really looks unlike an oak. The sixth one is very Beech like. All the others are just the sort of Oaks I love. The mixed bag are great too. I'm always on the lookout for trees full of character.

Thanks for posting. I'm off to take another look at your Flickr account.

Great trees... Thanks for posting.
Some of these in your posts elsewhere have inspired the styling of some trees I'm working on.

Glad you all like the trees. I forgot to post this one, a favourite of mine, a sycamore in Northumberland. We don't get so many sycamores down south, one of the things I look forward to on our trips up north is the sycamores.

Chris.

Thanks for posting thee great images.
A common feature on the really old ones are holes, hollows and deadwood, even on the deciduous trees.

How oft have I heard the phrase "you never see trees like this in nature" when stood behind narrow minded 'bonsai' (I say this with tongue in cheek) Folk at exhibitions.

[quote]How oft have I heard the phrase "you never see trees like this in nature"

This is most likely because, unless you are an enthusiast, you just don't see the detail. Hard for us to understand, I know.
I often amuse friends and family by stopping dead in my tracks to scrutinize trees such as these. You either get it or you don't.

Great photos.

Smithy, thanks for the pictures, the copper beech is superb.

Jersanct - thanks (I like your avatar, Wink you should see the tree in real life, it's amazing).

Hi Will, it is impossible to get a 'decent' Pic of the Fortingall Yew as it is surrounded by a large wall. I have visited the tree many times over the years, it is quite healthy.

Note: Pontius Pilate... it is claimed was born under the boughs of the tree, absolutely false. This was made up in Victorian (I think) times as a hook to lure Tourists to Glen Lyons. However it is not beyond the realms of possibilities that Pontius Pilate was indeed Scottish check here: Pontius Pilate ...that would explain a lot I think Fiona pale

As already well documented by St William the Connolly. I'd post a link but ... apart from the obvious concern about offending those sensitive to religious jokes, I doubt many would actually understand the Glasgow patois.
