Bear Rd. Elementary White Oak, North Syracuse, NY

NTS,

I've been holding hostage a few photos from a quick stop Tom Howard and I made in January 2016. Featured is a grand White oak, likely just under 200 years old, in the Village of North Syracuse. At 20' CBH, plus 1/2", I believe it is the largest-circumference White oak in Central NY. I don't have records for the height or crown spread of this tree, but being open-grown, the height is modest and crown spread exceeds 100' (average). Tom may have the exact numbers. Enjoy.
