   Hello! We are Lithuanian and we live in the town
called Silute. We are the students of the high
school No.4, grade 5 (11 - 12 years old). With great
eagerness we join in the projects concerning large
trees.
   Outside our town there is a large oak. It is the
 tallest oak in our area and it is called Pagryniu
 oak. The name is derived from the village called
Pagryniai. Its lenght is 0.5 meter and its hight
is 24 meters. In 1960's the oak was registered into
the list of to be protected in our area. In 1980's,
the oak was registered as nature monument of the
republic of Lithuania.
   The other informacion and decription of the oak
will follow later.
            Sincerely,
            your Lithuanian friends.
