We made it a point to see this tree while in the Thomasville area. This tree is HUGE! It is 337 years old and the spread is 160 feet. I believe it is a Live Oak.

Mom and I were in town for a family wedding, decided to take in a few sights. We were so grateful that someone has decided to preserve this tree. What a beauty!

This has been an attraction in Thomasville, GA for decades... It has had many famous celebrities... the city has done an outstanding job of keeping this attraction in great condition. A historic tree worth the visit and a few photos.

Quite spectacular in height width and depth. Majestic. Covered with something other than Spanish moss.

The signs around the town made it easy to find the tree and it was huge. The trunk was thick and I love how the branches extend so far and are low enough to sit on. Very enchanting tree.

Very large Oak tree. I would not make a trip just to view it but if in the area go. It's huge and has seen a lot of history. They have a camera positioned to take pictures you may go on line to view.
