An incomparable, powerful and shaping species - the effect of the oak on us is clear.
The Oak in the Tree Family
Among the various tree roots beneath the surface, the oak's stand out as a strikingly powerful and ingeniously rooted system. The earth is separated into two; a flat-rooted layer spread just below the surface of the earth which uses the first intake of warmth and the oxygen supply in the spring, resulting from the close proximity to the earth's surface - and a secondary layer which consists of much more powerful roots secured deeply into the ground. Even in hot, dry climatic areas in the summer, the moisture available in the air is used by the oak's system which makes the best use of scarce resources, allowing the growth of these powerful tree giants.
In addition to its enormous shape and the unbelievable stability of these trees, their presence is very noticeable. Oak trees can be over 1000 years old. In the development process of the forest, they take over the task of preserving the forests over periods of time that would feel like half an eternity for human beings. Almost everything of this tree is more permanent, powerful, harder, and heavier than we know of any other tree.
The Importance of the Oak
Anyone who wants to realize big projects and build high wooden spaces require strong, deep roots in material and design - ambition alone is not enough. Ambition without roots and strength drive our dreams to become hallow. The oak therefore is the epitome of the powerful, energetic and earth-bound tree; characteristics that can be drawn out and become invaluable to many.
All of those who work hard in their lives find that the oak as a tree represents willpower, perseverance, and endurance. The power of the oak is immediate, direct, yet quaint. Oak trees love nutrient-rich, deep soils; just like how the pure, raw energy from nature encourages us to enjoy life to the fullest and find support among our deep-rooted relationships.
