Reason for nomination:

  • "These trees protect our war memorial and keep those we remember company. I call them "the three graces" (oak trees). The larger two trees and the sibling tree "shoulder" the war memorial on the green from the north west winds. They are magnificent and give so much to those we remember in each and every season. Not least in the silence before dawn and then with the help of bird song at dawn. The squirrels too love the acorns." Monica Ricketts. "I have been lucky to live in Spriggs Court for 12 years, in a flat overlooking the green and I have admired the oak tree day and night through all the seasons. The tree has become part of our daily lives for myself and my husband. For me, it represents the quintessential "English" tree. Jane Gregory

Remarks & Tree condition:

  • This oak stands with two others on the green beside the Epping War Memorial on Palmers Hill, Epping. The green is part of Epping Forest and is managed by the City of London.
