God of Oak Trees

He is apparently the Kami of oak trees. However he seems to be quite obscure and may have been chopped down by now.

There is a good pedigree for oaks what with Robin Hood, Charles the Second, ‘Hearts of Oak’, Okalahoma and so on. Do great oaks from little Kami grow? If you have seen Kashiwa-no-Kami around please let us know.
