The Majestic Oak

Post by mdavie » Wed Feb 23, 2011 8:08 am

I just got back from a brief trip to Savannah; I didn't have much time at all to get out, but I did hear of one tree to visit in the city, only a couple of miles from where I was staying. Called the "Majestic Oak", it's in a small subdivision named after the tree, on a lot left alone at the corner of two roads. It's quite a lovely tree. The dimensions are:
24' 8" circumference
71 feet tall
142.5 short spread
157 long spread

It is very beautiful! I don't think there is a prettier tree than a Live Oak.

My stepson Brian Lyman is stationed at nearby Ft. Stewart. I hope to get back down there at least once before he gets out of the Army this July.

Md, Was that a single trunk or a multi? Larry

Hey Larry- about single or multi: it's hard to say, but I think it's really a single-stemmed tree, branching very low. There are certainly no inclusions between the main leaders, but you can see how low they all come into the trunk. I measured the girth at the narrowest point in the "waist" at about 2.5 feet.

Mike,

Sweet tree! I saw it back in 1991 and paced the spread to 155'. It is one of the finest trees I have seen in GA. I'm glad to see it get "ENTS"- thanks for posting the pics.

Mike,

You weren't at the ISA conference by chance?

My sister lives near that tree, but I've never been to see it. I'll have to see it next time I visit her.
