The IOS has its 25th anniversary in 2017, and a superb way to celebrate it will be to get yourself to the Czech Republic in July where, during Oak Open Days based at his arboretum near Poděbrady, enthusiastic and dynamic IOS member Dušan Plaček is sponsoring a "Birthday Banquet" for participants at Poděbrady Castle.
Oaks On a Finnish Farm
My hobby is forestry. I live in Finland, which is usually know for pines, firs and birches. Now I try to plant oaks too. Here are some of the oaks on my farm in Finland: two Quercus robur that are about 100 years old and some of the seedlings I have planted.
