Tips

  • Sebastian Kowalke

    The huge oak was with its over 300 years a well-known landmark of the Palatinate Forest. In 1994, the oak was so badly injured by unknown persons with a chainsaw that the tree died in spite of all rescue attempts. In 2010, the oak had become so rotten that it had to be felled. Today, the tree is a memorial to its former place and can still give you a sense of its size and age.

    This probably 300 years old oak tree was for many years Ausflugsziehl for schools during hiking days. In 1996, an idiot sawed through the tree trunk halfway with a chainsaw. The water supply for the tree was thus interrupted and the oak died. You can still see the remains of this beautiful old tree. In 2010 the oak was felled. Next door, a new oak was planted, maybe in a few hundred years, it will be used as a destination for school classes :-)

    Memorial for natural monument vandals ... in the meantime, although a new oak tree is in place, it still needs a few days to become as impressive as her big brother.

    The history of the "thick oak" was described in detail on the erected sign.

    Unfortunately the tree had to be felled. A new oak was planted instead.
