Ted and Jill go with Martine Lejeune to meet one of the oldest trees in Belgium Now  recognised by the community of Lummen and is being cared for – see the low fencing around it – a lovely gently hint to people not to trample its roots.

Visiting the Duizendjarige Eik in Belgium

Lummen, Belgium

Lummen, Belgium

Leading the way to the old oak is a wonderful banner. A special car parking area has been prepared and ‘grandchildren’ from the 1000 year old oak have been planted around it to carry on the oak tradition into the future. Great stuff Belgium!
