European Oak

The oak (Quercus) is a genus of plants in the beech family. They are easily recognised by their typical fruit, the acorn. The pioneer trees have a long history and are closely associated with us humans. In Germany, oak was already regarded by the Germanic tribes as a sign of immortality and steadfastness because of its hard wood and the very late falling leaves. During the Romantic period, it was regarded above all as a symbol of faithfulness. In view of the long-lasting, durable wood, this description probably fits best. With the right materials and professional workmanship, this wood is used to make faithful furniture that can be used for many generations to come. (cf. WAGENFUEHR, 2007)
