NORWAY -- If you drive from Norheimsund against Tørvikbygd, suddenly you will meet an old oak in the middle of the road, just before Tørvikbygd. This oak is one of several in the area, which are protected due to old age.

The oak was very controversial when the new road was to be planned and built. Many fought for the oak to be left alone, and in the local newspaper Hordaland Folkeblad, discussions were hard. Then it was decided to build the road around it.

Often tourists are seen being photographed with the oak, thankfully not after an abrupt stop, as no one has hit the tree (yet).

However, the oak is dying, it is infected by fungus. But it is said that an oak grows for 500 years and then dies for the next 500 years.

- For me personally, the oak in itself is a landmark in the community, and for me as a nature photographer, it's a great location, says Ronny Bru, a local resident.
