Old oaks live in Transcarpathia. In the village of Stuzhytsya there is a 1300-year-old oak. It is officially recognized as the oldest in Ukraine.
The experts of the Uzhok National Park told us about the unique trees and how they managed to save them.
Mrs. Andreya gladly stands for photo near the oak, which is 25 times older than herself. The trunk of the oldest oak Ukraine is 9.6 meters in diameter, and 25 meters high 25. The unique natural attraction has been growing in Transcarpathia in the village of Stuzhytsya for 1,300 years. This oak is called "the champion."
Near the "champion" there is the grandfather-oak. You could not embrace this tree, even if you really wanted. In would require six pairs of hands. This oak is about one thousand years old. Its diameter is slightly less than that of the "champion" - 9.1 meters, but the height is more - up to 30 meters. Modern scholars know what to do to make the unique trees grow in the future. The director of the Uzhok National Park Vasyl Kopach advised to use a simple way, "do not destroy them, do not hurt them!We carried out treatment of the grandfather oak and the champion oak with the help of Czech arborist volunteers (arborists are professionals who care and treat trees as needed. - Ed.) And, according to experts, our oaks will live for another 500 years."
