Oaks going for it

Hi peeps,

Noticed that oak trees in our area are really putting on amazing growth on the main limbs and trunks. Have seen poplars, willows and limes do this, but not oaks to this degree.

Can anyone blind me with science as to why they're doing this and this year? 

Ps noticed loads of really quite large elms in flower this year too, might they be going to survive the dreaded dutch elm??

    my little kept in line oak tree is do a spurt of growing most likely because it has had a good drink last year and this year the suns come out at last.certainly the elder trees are doing well a lot in heavy flower.image
