On your way to Aiken. . .

On your way to AIken in South Carolina this November, you might pass by Red Oak, NC. 

The City of Aiken has in cultivation what is believed to be the most comprehensive collection of oaks in the United States. The week-end of 2-3 November will be devoted to discovering this collection and more.

Michel Timacheff, IOS Member and photographer, came across an old oak near Villers-sur-Lesse in southern Belgium.  Its circumference is over 6 meters at BH.

The same oak was already a landmark at the end of the 19th century.
