Father Oak

It has been said that when the Celts settled into a area they would
select it near a grove of oak trees. 
The druids would select a "Father Tree" so to speak as the tree would be the protector of the clan.
All meetings and gatherings concerning the clan would be held
under the tree. The following are some are some incredible
old trees in the U.K.
