Freya’s Oak

Freya's Oak

Freya had a reverence for the beauty and longevity of trees, and for the myths and folklore that surround them. She asked for a tree to be dedicated to her:

I would like a tree; something with flowers or an old English species like and oak or a horse chestnut. I would love it to be in a public place – somewhere beautiful.

Freya’s oak is a “notable tree” and can be found in Shotover Hill Country Park. Freya lived near Shotover and visited the park and photographed the trees there many times.
