You touch that tree and I punch your nose!
Nice pick. Trees are amazing living creatures.

Is that the Major Oak ? My wife and I were in Sherwood Forest many years ago...word was that this tree was in existence since Robin Hood's day....if indeed Robin existed.

I like the picture and seeing a tree in the famous forest of Sherwood.

Thats not the major oak, this is, it is very old and needs supporting, when we were kids we used to play in it, but now its fenced off.

It was a very overcast day so not great for taking pictures thats why i started taking the close up ones
