This is the most massive tree I believe I have every seen! We were on another tour (Taste of Thomasville Food Tour - GO on this!) and our guide took our group to view this tree. She had some interesting stories related to this tree.

Our Bus Tour came to the Big Oak . The Guide was very good and we were able to have a Group Picture taken by the Mounted Camera. I was able to pull it up at home. Good Deal.

Sure it's just a tree, but the Big Oak is a Thomasville landmark!! Be sure to get out of your car and stand next to it. Behind the sign is a pamphlet that will tell you how to have your picture made by the camera...More

The "Big Oak" is a Thomasville landmark. I've never seen an oak this large. Like it should be in Yosemite with the giant for trees. One of the 7 wonders of the oak tree world? A must see!

If this tree could talk, you can imagine the stories it would tell. I was so fascinated by this remarkable tree. The city of Thomasville has done an excellent job caring for it. Just knowing how old it is and how massive it is, is...More
