Big Tree Oele, Netherlands

Arie Pieters in Groene Monumenten

The "big tree Oele 'is no more. Around 1930 he seems to have been felled by a tornado. The oak was at that time one of the thickest of the Netherlands with its circumference of almost 7 meters. He was probably between 300-400 years old. (Source: Bomeninfo.nl)

"I love science and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awe by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and revigorate it." by Robert M. Sapolsky
