The oldest living oak tree in the Czech Republic is considered to be the Žižka oak tree in Náměstí, whose age has been determined to be over 1000 years using a dendrochronological method. The oak grows very slowly, reaching maturity at 100 years old, although it is long-living, able to live for up to 1500 years. From time immemorial, the oak has been a symbol of strength, long life and hardiness and also achieved a privileged position due to Germanic mythology, where it was associated with the God of Thunder, Thor. It is considered the German national tree and a symbol of the German nation.
