Loode oak stand study trail (2.8 km)

Due to the restoration works of the wooded meadow in the Loode oak stand, the study trail of the Loode oak stand is not available. The end date of the restoration is February 2020.
During the time of a risk of a forest fire in Estonia: • You can make fire only in designated places. • You can make fire only with a wind up to 5 m/s. • Watch out your fire!
The oak belonging to the oldest generation of the Loode oak stand, dedicated to the linguist Johannes Aavik, was measured to be 450-500 years old in October 2000. The oldest generation of the oak stand is presumably formed of trees that remained from the shipbuilding campaign initiated by Peter I.
