Oak comes from across most of Europe.
Oak grows to about 20-25 meters high and can have a diameter of up to 5-7 meters. It can reach an impressive age between 400-600 years old, but is of age ready for felling when the tree is around 120 + years. Oak has a distinctive appearance with a smooth bark on young trees and a coarser crust bark with deep furrows on older trees.
Oak is characterised as a hard and easy to use lumber. It is very strong and has over time been used for half-timbers and ships. Oak is a good choice for a countertop as it is incredibly durable and strong.
Oak has a beautiful golden colour that gets a little darker with age.
