What is the Latin name for Robin Hood's hideout?
The Latin name is Quercus robur. According to local legend, the legendary Robin Hood had a favorite hideout. That hideout was inside a huge oak tree. The tree came to be called the Cockpen Tree by the mid-1700s. Inside its cavity fighting cocks used to be stored before the games. Once cockfighting had fallen into disfavor, the tree came to be called the Queen's Oak. The last name change was to the Major oak. The Major oak was so named to honor Major Hayman Rooke [Baptized February 20, 1723-September 1806]. In 1790, Rooke wrote and published a book entitled 'Remarkable Oaks' about nine historic oaks of England. One such remarkable oak was the Cockpen/Queen's/Major oak. The Major oak has the reputation of being the biggest oak in England. Nowadays, it reaches a height of 19 meters/52 feet, a girth of 10 meters/33 feet around the main trunk, and a canopy spread of 28 meters/92 feet. About every 3-4 years, it still produces an acorn crop that may number as many as 150,000. England boasts about 500 species of oaks. But the Major oak is a member of one of the two oaks species native to England. Its membership is in the Pedunculate or English oak species, whose Latin name is Quercus robur. The other oak native to England is the sessile or Durmast oak, whose Latin name is Quercus petraea.
