If you're interested in Oak trees, you might want to check out the following book:
 
"Oak: The Frame of Civilization" by  William Bryant Logan
 
>From the cover overleaf:
"The ink with which Bach wrote down his cantatas. The tall ship that established the American navy.
The bread that fed millions in the ancient world.  The first bridge. The first boat to reach the New
World, and all boats after it for 800 years.  The great work of art of the European Middle Ages. The
house and the door, the wagon and the barrel, the sword and the saddle, the henge and the church....
Oak is at the root of almost everything we know.  Still, its role has been almost completely forgotten."
