  1. I've only ever had one Scalloped Oak in the garden Trent. No idea why so scarce?

  2. They are certainly in Northumberland, a little more thinly distributed than our patch. Can't think why they are so scarce in your garden 'cos they feed on various deciduous trees. Just the luck of the draw I guess.
