    The "millennial oak" died a natural death. The remains are supposed to be taken over by nature.

    impressive old oak. A concrete core, which should stabilize the tree, has simply spat out the oak tree :-) It is still standing, even without help

    The oak is the oldest tree in the Wahner Heide, several hundred years old, but not really 1000 years old.
    To secure the stand, an iron-reinforced concrete core was inserted into the trunk, which has been hollowed out for over 100 years, but has since broken out. Experts now believe that the oak is just as stable. Nevertheless, the area around the oak is secured with a wooden fence.
    Since the tree has far exceeded its natural life expectancy, no "life-sustaining measures" have been carried out for several years.
    For further details see kuladig.de/Objektansicht/O-85799-20140214-2.
    Unfortunately, I don't have a picture because it was already too dark. But that can be found with other hikers.

    The hiking trail around the Millennial Oak is well signposted and as a further highlight there is a hill with a very good view of Cologne Bonn Airport.

    Unfortunately the 1000 year old oak has collapsed. I was fortunate enough to see her two weeks ago. But the way is still worth it!

    Cool place in the middle of the Wahner Heide. The 1000 year old oak is simply impressive

    Here you can take a break on benches and look at the old oak fallen from the storm and the newly set up oak.

    The old oak was a common oak. Since grape oaks are a little more drought-tolerant, a young oak tree was planted next to the "corpse" in 2020. May she grow old as well! Nice to see photos of the standing tree here on komoot.

    An old tree in the middle of the forest. Here you can rest briefly and continue on solid paths.

    Yes, unfortunately, the millennial oak tree is dead. Every time I passed by, I had to remember what she had experienced. Finally, she fought bravely, but she could not resist the ever-increasing storms and hurricanes. Pity ..

    This oak in the Wahner Heide is something special. Unfortunately, she is no longer standing but has collapsed some time ago. Even so, the remains are imposing.

    Actually, you have to have seen the tree in its earlier state to appreciate what is now lying on the ground.

    The "millennial oak" died of natural causes. After it fell over, the concrete support corset was removed and a new oak was planted in the same place. The old tree remains in place so that it is easy to see how nature breaks down the wood over the years and processes it into humus.
