Prins Eugen’s Oak

The Prince Eugen oak is growing in the park to the north of Prince Eugen’s Waldemarsudde. The oak is believed to be the oldest living oak on Djurgården, indeed in the whole of Stockholm. The oak originally had three trunks. When measured in 2006, it was 21 metres high. The circumference of the trunk was 9.2 metres, and its volume was 45 cubic metres. The age of the tree has been estimated at between 300 and 400 years. Oaks were protected in Sweden in the 16th century, such that they could be used as timber to build warships. The punishment for cutting down an oak during the period when Sweden was a major power was death – the oaks were the property of the king. Oaks were protected right up until the 1830s, and this is why so many oaks remain on Djurgården and throughout Sweden.
