Each tree species has its own symbolism. The sessile oak is slow to grow but is one of the strongest and most productive trees. It is characteristic of our regions and climates, it shelters a rich fauna and feeds many small animals, squirrels, birds, and larger ones like wild boar. It is the tree of Saint Louis, who dispensed justice under its shade. It can grow high, and its wood is used for carpentry as well as for furniture and staves for wine. It is the tree par excellence. In a number of Indo-European languages, oak refers to the tree itself. In France, more than 220 place names refer to localities established in or near an oak forest.
