Raškovické Oaks

Basic information Three memorable English Oaks (Quercus robur) grow near the Chapel of St. John the Baptist, built in 1790, and can be found next to the road exactly opposite to the Raškovice Local Authority. These oaks were declared memorable already in 1972 and nowadays are strongly suffering from drought. Their age is approximately 200–300 years. They are 18, 21 a 24,5 meters tall with trunk circumferences from 410 to 625 cm. Matters of interest Raškovické Oaks were competing in the survey called „The tree of the year 2003“ held by the Partnership charity but did not get into the finals. The trees were treated in 1998 and 2009 when its dry end parts of branches were cut down. The more distant oak on the right side of the chapel suffers from drought the most. Sporocarps of a rare wood-decaying beefsteak fungus (Fistulina hepatica) were found on this oak. This polypore orange-red fungus is edible while zouny and for its appearance is sometimes popularly called ox or deer tongue.
