Oak Tree.jpgHere is my contribution to Becca’s Sunday Trees challenge. This may very well be the oldest tree in Annapolis, Maryland. Maryland was once home to the famous Wye Oak, not to be confused with the Indi rock band of the same name. The Wye Oak, found in Talbot County was the oldest oak tree in the United States, perhaps all of North America. It was the state tree of Maryland from 1941 until its death in 2002. It was killed by a severe storm. Believed to be at least 460 years old at the time of its destruction, I can’t help but wonder if it was an early casualty of climate change?
