Old is a Relative Term

What is old to those of us who live in the Midwest or Upper South, isn't necessarily old to those living in other parts of the country. This is a picture I took of Angel Oak, which is reputed to be up to 1,500 years old. It is located on John's Island, near Charleston, South Carolina, where I visited last week. One of the limbs is 89 feet long. No matter how you look at it, this is one big old tree!

Click on the picture to get a feeling of just how large this tree is.
