Geocache Description:


Svenska

Här har man fin utsikt över den mäktiga Ekebyhovseken. Enligt en mätning gjord 2008 är det Sveriges volymmässigt största levande lövträd, med en volym på ca 84 kubikmeter. Omkretsen i brösthöjd är 10,5m, och trädet är 17m högt. Uppskattningar av trädets ålder varierar mellan 500 och 1000 år. Det är i alla fall högst troligt att eken spirade här när Gustav Vasa besteg tronen 1521.
