The Flitton Oak

The Flitton Oak sits on a forgotten piece of land in North Devon. This ancient Oak is at least 700 years old possibly older but is now at risk of being smothered by younger trees. The tree has been propped but the prop is now failing putting it at risk of collapse. After a positive meeting with Bob Stevenson, Devon County Council’s Tree Officer, I’m hopeful that we can look at options to install a new prop and begin to clear the competing vegetation to save this historic tree.
