I would say that accolade goes to Major Oak
The Wilberforce Oak:
At length, I well remember after a conversation with Mr. Pitt in the open air at the root of an old tree at Holwood, just above the steep descent into the vale of Keston, I resolved to give notice on a fit occasion in the House of Commons of my intention to bring forward the abolition of the slave-trade.
Queen Elizabeth I Oak
In a romantic moment it is rumoured that Queen Elizabeth was conceived under the oak. Wikipedia more modestly claims Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn “danced” around the tree.
The remains of both oaks can still be seen, but as nether is living perhaps they cannot now be described as trees.
The King of Limbs, a 1000 year old oak in Savernake Forest is pretty impressive.Ok if this becoming old tree top trumps I will submit the Borrowdale Yews which are way over 2000 years old. Most of the trees mentioned before
are/were just young saplings. BTW this photo was NOT taken from my van. Anyone who gets their van up to here deserves a prize or a straight jacket.
