Savannah's Oaks

kathleen Dupuis - Monday, July 29, 2013
We are so proud of our city's huge oak trees! They  provide refreshing shade on the hottest of summer days and homes for the smallest of creatures in our city.  When people think about Savannah, most of the time they picture roads with canopies of trees, or the huge oak trees whose limbs stretch far and wide--the kind of trees that kids dream about climbing. 
One of the most well known trees in Savannah is called the Majestic Oak and it is the largest and oldest tree in Savannah. It's girth measures 27 feet 8 inches around, it measures 165 feet 7 inches across from the tips of the longest branches, and is guessed to be between 300-500 years old. It is located in the Majestic Oak Neighborhood, which was built around this amazing tree.
The other great tree sites to visit on your next trip to Savannah are:
*Canopied Roadways at Ardsley Park and the Historic District
*Heritage Trees in Thunderbolt
*Trees that will make you say WOW
