Beautiful tree in a well-kept neighborhood. It is worth a quick stop if you are in the area. Nice photo opp. Just a few blocks from the downtown area.

One of the largest and most beautiful oak trees I've ever seen. Like the sign says please be respectful. Very awe inspiring.
This is my 2nd time of going to see the huge tree! I love to go to admire the huge graceful branching old tree. I'm a plant person so this is a reason I like seeing the tree. I live in central Florida and don't get to see the tree too often but when I do..it's a trilling experience for me!
