About

Knightwood Oak which is also known as the ‘Queen of the forest’ and is over 500 years old.

Knightwood Oak is along the Ornamental Drive, if you take the A35 Christchurch road from Lyndhurst for approximately 3 miles take the right hand turning signed to Bolderwood and the Knightwood Oak car park is the first car park on the left hand side.

From the car park which is only a short walk away there is a compact gravel track which is suitable for wheelchair and pushchair users which will lead to the largest oak tree (7.4m girth) in the New Forest and one of the oldest too - the Knightwood Oak.

The Knightwood oak is a perfect example of the unique art of ‘pollarding' which is the traditional way of harvesting wood without killing the tree. The area is well inclosed so it makes an ideal cover to have a nice picnic amongst some of the oldest trees in the New Forest.
