Spending time with grand trees in Charleston, SC

Last week I had the opportunity to spend some time with my SavATree colleagues and some amazing trees in Charleston, SC.  It was fantastic to spend some time around some old live oaks on historic properties in and around the city. These trees were too good not to share.

 

The Middleton Oak at the Middleton Plantation is estimated to be hundreds of years old. My collegaue Stan Holat is standing against the trunk to provide a sense of scale. Big tree! It exhibits a pattern of lower limb failure sometimes seen in very old oaks.

A fantastic time full of great trees and Southern hospitality. Added bonus – the pecan pie was the best ever!
