It's called Christian the Fifth's Oak - and its over 1,7m in diameter.
It is so called because the danish king (Christian) was out fox hunting on oct. 19 1698, and had caught a red deer by this tree. The deer gored him with its antlers, and he died 6 months later from the wounds.
The tree is very much alive, and shows no signs of rot yet - I have occasionationaly spotted a raven in this tree, otherwise its just normal smaller birds
