The most common forest tree in England. The tree grows to heights of 60-100 feet with diameters of 4-6 feet. A close cousin to the Irish Bog Oak, it comes from the bogs of the British Isles outside of Ireland. The three important types of wood found preserved in bogs today are Scot’s pine, oak and yew. They can be from 4,000 to 7,000 years old.
