Quercus robur

Comment from Miriam Mesa-Villalba

Very few gardens have room for a full-sized oak tree but this species is massively important in wildlife terms. It supports more species of insects and invertebrates than any other - a staggering 350 species of insect depend on the leaves, galls, acorns and heartwood of oak. Acorns provide food for many birds and mammals. Older trees with holes offer nesting sites for birds and roosting places for bats.
