What do oaks mean to YOU?

There are many ways we might think about and interact with oaks and oak woodlands; they might engage our SENSES, invoke EMOTIONS, radiate BEAUTY, bring us MEANING, or inspire COMPASSION. But what do oaks mean to you? 

We'd love to receive your tributes to oaks in the form of text or images, or both!

Submit your tribute using the form below and you'll be entered into a PRIZE DRAW where 5 lucky entrants will win a £25 voucher redeemable against outdoor clothing/equipment or horticultural goodies (UK residents only).
