The Angel Oak is property of and maintained by the City of Charleston, South Carolina. The tree could be as old as 1500 years but attempts to age the tree have failed. It stands 65 feet tall and the crown covers an area of 17,000 square feet. Its longest limb is 89 feet long.
You are correct, Les. To stand in the presence of this old lady is to be in awe. I was completely blown away by it. I probably took 50 pictures. And to think, for years I drove past this tree at least a dozen times a year, if not more, on the way to and from Seabrook Island. I *will* be back.
