A mature oak tree provides shelter for hundreds of moths, birds, and bugs; each part of the tree houses its own inhabitants.

“A mature oak tree, standing a hundred feet tall, provides lodging, and often board as well, for more different kinds of animals than any other European tree. Thirty species of birds, forty-five different bugs and over two hundred species of moth have been collected from oaks. Each part of the tree has its own particular lodgers.” (Attenborough 1995:153)
