Geocache Description:

LV: slepnis atrodas aptuveni 2m augstuma ENG: The cache is located at a height of approximately 2m

Kanepju ozols - otrais resnakais dižozols Latvija un Baltija, kura apkartmers ir 9,4m. Tas atrodas Strencu novada 1,8km no Jercenu centra pie Kanepju majam. Vainaga projekcija - 19m, augstums 17m, vecums aptuveni 450 gadi. vai varbut vel agrak ozolu gandriz iznicinajis zibens, tacu tas sacis atjaunoties stumbra dienvidu puse. Vel tagad 3,5m plata nedzivas koksnes reta redzama stumbra ziemelu puse. Pec speriena ozola stumbrs un vainags audzis tikai viena puse. Ozolam ir milzigs dobums, kura var novietoties 8-12 cilveki. Dobuma uz nedzivas koksnes ir iegrebti daudzi iniciali. Vecakais ir gadu skaitlis no 1886.g., kas liecina, ka zibens speriens ir noticis pirms tam. Dobuma iegrebts ari blakus esošo „Kanepju” maju saimnieka vards N.Cirulis 15. VII 1928. Bet, ludzu, jus neko neiegrebt, lai šis koks priecetu mus vel daudzus gadus!

Kanepju ozols is the second largest secular oak tree in Latvia and Baltic states with a perimeter of 9,4m. It is located in Strencu region 1,8km from the centre of Jerceni near house „Kanepji”. The projection of crown- 19m, height- 17m, age – around 450 years. In XIX century (or maybe later) the tree was almost destroyed by a lightning strike, however, it started regenerating at the south side of the bole. Even now a 3,5m wide scar can be seen on the north side of the bole. After this strike the oak tree and the crown are growing only on one side. The oak tree has a huge hollow, where 8 to 12 people can be located. In the hollow there are many initials carved into the wood. The oldest date is from 1886, which tells us that the lightning strike happened before that. In the hollow you can also find the host’s name of a nearby house „Kanepji”- N.Cirulis 15. VII 1928

Piebraukt var 20m no ozola (masinu erti atstat pirms pirmas ekas). Nav sunu un tas neatrodas privata teritorija, lai gan netalu atrodas maja. Sis koks ir turisma objekts. Veiksmi meklesana!
