The Bonsai Oak in Begard

Species: pedunculate oak bonsai (Quercus robur "Bonzai")
Age: 100 years years
Region: Begard, Brittany region, France

In France, Bretons are said to be stubborn. This beautiful Breton oak is a good example of stubborness as it grew up on the top of the old dovecote, for almost 100 years! Begard inhabitants and their mayor are so proud of their bonsai tree that they made it the symbol of the city. Proud, courage, stubborness… Hurray for the Bretons!
