A Silky Oak tree was planted to commemorate the coronation of George V in 1911. 

On June 22, 1911, a little over a year after he ascended to the throne, George Frederick Ernest Albert of the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha was crowned King George V of the United Kingdom at Westminster Abbey. Crowned by his side was his wife, who chose “Mary” for her name as Queen even though her actual first name was Victoria.
