So disappointing to see a majestic tree not be free. Kind of like watching King Kong as the caged ape. Why do people have to mess with nature in every way. Leave the old tree alone and it grow into its glory. leave it the way it was meant to live and die that way it was meant to die.

Instead they created a nursing home for a tree!

Branches, branches everywhere! Gnarling and twisting in almost every direction, this tree is an amazing site. It’s well worth the quick detour down the rough dirt road. If you can, try to go on a weekday when it is a little less busy. We went on a Saturday and the hoard of people took away some of the tree’s stunning beauty.

Decided to drive outside Charleston to see the Angel Tree and it is an amazing sight. It is free to enter. There is a lot of information about the tree and plenty of areas for photos. The area was very serene and I would return again. Well worth the drive out the little dirt road!

The tree is very pretty but your pics won't be - they have chains and large signs setup all around the tree which can't be moved. They show up in all the photos which is a bummer.

Angel Oak is a massive southern live oak on John's Island. The City of Charleston has a park surrounding the tree. It's free to visit and there's a small gift shop here, but not much else for amenities. Angel Oak is considered one of the largest trees in the eastern US and it's magnificent. One limb is more than 180 feet long it's shade covers 17,000 square feet. Dogs on a leash are allowed in the picnic area but not close to the tree. The park is very popular and can get crowded, but definitely worth a visit in Charleston. Parking is very limited along a gravel road so try to visit early.
