The Suffragette Oak
Species: Sessile oak (Quercus petraea)
Age: 97years years
Region: Kelvingrove Park, Glasgow, Scotland, UK
This relatively young oak in Kelvingrove Park is a big part of the history of Glasgow’s women. It was planted by suffrage organisations on 20 April 1918 to commemorate the granting of votes to women. Beside the tree is a beautiful plaque, placed by Glasgow District Council in 1995. It is a favourite spot on the Glasgow Women’s Library West End Women’s Walk.
