Keywords: Stelmužės ąžuolas;Lenkaičių ąžuolas;Medingėnai;Gedikos upelis;The performed in-depth analysis of relevant literature and own research data let us state, that most of the information about Stelmužė oak, presented in scientific, popular science and cognitive literature sources, is incorrect, because it represents not the original measurements of this oak, but the retold, misunderstood, larded or hyperbolized information. In 2012 the circumference of Stelmužė oak (at the breash height) was about 9,58 m, and diameter – about 3,05 m. The height of the oak was about 19,5 m, and the calculated approximate age – only about 450-600 years. Meanwhile, in the numerous literature sources the height of this oak varies from 17 to 30 m, diameter – from 2,7 to 5,4 m, and age – from 700 to 2000 years. Lenkaičiai (Medingėnai) oak grew in the village of Lenkaičiai close to the Gedika stream, 2 km to the east from Medingėnai town. The preliminary height of this oak was about 27 m, diameter – 2,86 ± 0,15 m, volume – about 67–75 m3, and age – about 400–500 years. It is very likely, that before its death, this oak was about 10 cm thicker than Stelmužė oak. In the middle of XIX century the stem of Lenkaičiai (Medingėnai) oak got burnt out till the height of 9–10 m, however, in the beginning of XX century the crown of the tree was still lively. Only several thick branches were dry. Unfortunately, in 1967 the strongest windstorm of XX century in Lithuania broke down this unnamed natural [...];Oak Stelmužė;Oak Lenkaičiai;Medingėnai;Stream Gedika
Abstract: Analizuojant mokslinius, mokslo populiarinimo ir beletristinius kūrinius, straipsnyje išsamiai apžvelgiamas ,,storiausio ir seniausio Lietuvoje bei Europoje“ Stelmužės ąžuolo legendos atsiradimas ir raida nuo XX a. pradžios iki šių dienų. Straipsnyje tai pat bandoma įvertinti ir palyginti tarpusavyje realius dviejų stambiausių XX a. Lietuvoje – Stelmužės ir Lenkaičių (Medingėnų) – ąžuolų matmenis
