White Oak at Wachusett Meadows

Post by shinrin_yoku » Thu Oct 11, 2018 8:38 pm

Is anyone familiar with this tree at Mass Audubon Wachusett Meadows Wildlife sanctuary? Their website describes it as a "near champion White Oak over 15 feet in girth and over 250 years old". I haven't seen many other oaks this size in Mass, it's quite impressive. Attached are photos I took from the last time I visited:

How does it compare with the state champion?
