Location and history: The Adlereiche stands in the Stuttgart wildlife park on the north shore of Lake Pfaff. It takes its name from ospreys that nested here a few decades ago. The monumental trunk is heavily mossed on one side. He has a few irregularities on the floor and is otherwise unaffected. The trunk goes straight about 8 m and then divides into two shoots that form the high crown. Several branches have already broken off, stumps have remained, or have died. The vitality is still quite good. The oak is described in paths to old trees by Fröhlich as follows: “One of the strongest oaks in the red deer park. Pedunculate oak with a mighty, column-shaped trunk, which is equipped with bumps and stumps. Loose but vital crown. Up until a few decades ago, ospreys were still nesting here. ”
The tree is a pedunculate oak and about 350 years old and has a circumference of about 6.60 m. The height is about 28 m and stands at 425 m above sea level.
