ABSTRACT
The author talks about the oaks that are situated at the Buckingham Palace Garden in London, England. He identifies the features of the garden including its quietness, size, and soil. He also identifies the oak trees that may be found at the garden including a hybrid oak, a pin oak, and a red oak. One justification for planting a wider selection of species is said to be the high reliance on the London plane tree or Platanus x hispanica.
