English Oak tree (Quercus robur), also known as Pedunculate Oak. It is quite common to see old oak trees where the canopy has receded, leaving dead branches visible. This 'stag headed' appearance is unsightly but does not necessarily mean that the whole tree will die. The smaller canopy demands less from the root system so this is a way to retrench and extend the life of the tree.
