A Q. affinis planted in November 1996 was killed outright in the 2003 drought. An older one planted in the valley survived in the moister conditions, and at 8 metres in 2016 is apparently the tallest in France. It has small glossy leaves, and the tree here has made a narrow cone bizarrely mirroring the shape of a Chamaecyparis next to it.
