I'm no expert, but here we go with names again (the Latin is best but not always definitive).
The term English oak could refer to several species.
I'm not sure if there are any Cork oaks in Britain.
J.W. has done a great job of presenting information, Through the year i will try to find examples of pendunculate and sessile oaks to put on this thread.
We have a curious problem here in that there are clearly the galls caused by a certain species of insect that is know (so the books say) to hop species of tree for two different generations throughout the year.
From our ordinary oaks it is supposed to hop to the Turkey oak, yes great information until i ask local knowledgeable people (so where are the Turkey oaks). We don't know, never seen one etc.
I wonder if these insects are over wintering on Holme Oaks which we do have (they are evergreen oaks). i have no evidence to support this idea, just fishing for answers !.
It's young and perhaps not growing in a fast growing environment which leads many species to be small and rounded (see Eskimos or Svalbard reindeer).
