The Spanish Oak was more than 100 years old and less than 200

LinkToday the tree contractors took out the last of the two fallen oaks in the Japanese Woodland.

I took some closeups of the rings and will study them later. Even from this view there are some standout issues. What's with that red ring 25? years ago? And look how big the rings inside that are for a few years.....rainfall or irrigation? I'm betting irrigation. In my next life I'm going to be a dendrochronologist!
