Trees makes forests great!
"Majesty" The Fredville Oak, Norrington, Kent, England. Majesty, is the most impressive of all British Oaks. Its enormous trunk has a circumference of 12,3 m (40 feet). There are six oaks in Britain which have an even somewhat bigger girth, but these are all short-trunked pollards, whereas Majesty is a 'maiden tree' with a long trunk up to 9 m ( 30 feet) height. In total the tree is 18 m (60 feet) tall.
The Treaty Oak is a field live oak (quercus virginiana) that is the oldest living thing in Jacksonville. It’s called “Treaty Oak” because way back in the 1930’s a journalist wrote a story claiming that a treaty between the native Floridians and the Spanish had been singed beneath it. This “journalist” made up the story to save the tree from a developers axe. It worked, for many years the story was believed.
