  • Sitting in Urvaste Parish, deep within the heart of Võru County, Estonia, the Tamme-Lauri Oak is most indubitably the thickest and the oldest tree of its parent country. Soaring at an awe-inspiring height of 17 metres and reaching a circumference of 8.31 metres (quite a feat, all things considered), it was reportedly planted in 1326. Represented artistically on the back side of the Estonian 10 kroon banknote, it was castigated by lightning strikes throughout the years so much that it has repeatedly lost and regrown its canopy. The cavity that can be somewhat seen on it was once filled with reinforced concrete to keep it together.
