The oak was named after Arnold Hülsemann, who was a hunting lodge in Steininger Walddistrikt "Lehnwald" several decades ago. Their age is estimated at more than 300 years, also the tree is more than 20 meters high.The tree-Methuselah was spared from being cut down by the purchase of Mr. Hülsemann at that time and after Arnold Hülsemann had died, his wife had a resting-bench built under the oak as a reminder and a wooden shoe nailed to the tree. In this shoe fir-trees were put from the Hülsermanns manor.Today the bench with table is a bit off. The wooden shoe still exists and from the bench Susi and I were able to admire the magnificent oak. May she stand there in the forest for many hundreds of years
