On our way down to Georgia for Thanksgiving, we made a planned stop to visit the National Champion white oak tree in southern Virginia. The tree is incredible, absolutely giant!
The owner not only welcomed us to come see the white oak, but also ended up inviting us inside his house! He’s been the owner for about eight years and bought the place furnished. There was lots to see inside, so many neat old things. I have to say though, what struck me most was the fact that this brave man invited a family with seven kids inside his house! Everyone behaved, nothing was broken, and we were very grateful for the opportunity.
p.s. here’s a link to the American Forests champion tree register.
