We were not sure if a visit to an old tree would be worth it but we were very impressed. Opinions differ on the age of the tree but it is old and unlike anything we have every seen. We walked slowly around and just admired what mother nature had created. The tree is gated and you need to check... More

There was a photo of this extraordinary oak tree in Beaufort and I asked about it and they said it was too far. All things are relative, alas. Onward! North! It's a bit confusing to get to, but we found it and it was worth it. 66 ft tall. 17,500 ft. of shade. 500 years old. You just have to... More

We drove down to Charleston for a day to go out to Folly Beach and the Angel Tree. This is a free park with a very quiet and peaceful atmosphere. Lots of places to sit and relax with signage that tells about the tree. Two ladies in the little souvenir hut, one making sea grass baskets. A little shopping area... More

It doesn't matter if arborists can't agree, this tree is old. This tree is big. This tree is beautiful. Worth the 15 min stop for a photo opp.

This beautiful oak tree is approx 400 years old & is huge! Well worth a visit for 10-15 minutes to admire & take a photo or 2. It is a bit of a drive from downtown Charleston, we got a cab, but I think it's worth the effort.

If you are sightseeing in SC, you must go check out the Angel Oak Tree. It's estimated to be 400-500 years old with a life expectancy of 900 years. The location does a wonderful job at keeping the tree safe from harm with signage everywhere in regards to proper behavior around the tree. You can expect there to be a... More

The sheer size of the Angel Oak Tree is amazing. To know that it has stood in it's present place for over 400 years is a bit humbling. It connects us to our past and reminds us that Nature never forgets. I am so glad I took the time to visit it. If you are in the area, it is... More
