Description

Quercus was the Roman word for Oak and Robur means hard and strong, as in robust. 'Mighty Oaks from Little Acorns Grow', is a famous phrase that means, great things may come from small beginnings, and this is so true when you look at what the small acorn has to go through before it can take its place in the forest, as a mighty English oak tree called Quercus Robur. This story tells you about the adventures of Quercus Robur, and shows you how it manages to survive in the forest, growing from a little acorn that relies on its body clock and natural instincts, to grow into a mighty tree. Follow its life and watch it avoid all the challenges and dangers of the natural world, the weather, insects, animals, disease and of course humans, trying to prevent it from growing into the mightiest tree in the forest. Read how this mighty oak develops from an acorn to a majestic aged tree, in a miracle of life, taking its natural place in amongst other trees in the woodlands, building a community in nature for the benefit of all the fungi, insects, birds, and animals that depend on it for their survival, and of course us humans that have used its wood and acorns in many ways through the past centuries.show more
