Oak Dunin

Species: English oak (Quercus robur L.)
Age: 400  years
Region: Przybudki, Podlaskie Province, Poland

Guardian of the Białowieża Primeval Forest

The oak tree is growing at the edge of the Białowieża Primeval Forest, one of the most known lowland forests, not only in Poland but also in Europe. It has been particularly respected and admired by local people as well as tourists visiting this area of Poland, called the European Region of Wisent. It is an inspiration for many artists. It amazes in every season – during full vegetation but also when it is showing its leafless, mysteriously curved branches.
