A Remarkable white oak

Tree Information

Common Name: white oak

Scientific Name: Quercus alba

Category: Beautiful tree

Comments: This is a gorgeous tree that has survived dispite all the construction surrounding it. Thankfully, someone has made a concious effort to spare its life and it lives on , beautifully, in the middle of a busy parking lot. A poem was written and a ribbon placed around the tree to celebrate Arbor Day. It reads: As I reach my limbs to heaven, I thank God he didn't turn me into a 7-11. Happy Arbor Day!

Best time to photograph: not sure
