Montezuma Cypress: The Tule Tree Located in the grounds of a church in Santa María del Tule in the Mexican state of Oaxaca. It measures more than 119 feet around and 116 feet high. About 2,000 years old.
Árbol del Tule, located in the town center of Santa María del Tule, Oaxaca ~ a Montezuma cypress (Taxodium mucronatum), it has the stoutest trunk of any tree in the world ~ on the tentative list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites | Fernando Toledo on 500px/ The Cypress is my favorite tree of all. I first saw one in Washington, DC, across the street from the White House.
"The Angel Oak is a Southern live oak tree located in Angel Oak Park, in Charleston, South Carolina on Johns Island, one of South Carolina's Sea Islands. It is estimated to be over 1400 years old, standing 20 m (65 feet) tall, 2.47 m in diameter, and the crown covers an area of 1,580 m² (17,000 square feet). Its longest limb is 27 m (89 feet) in length. The tree and surrounding park have been owned by the city of Charleston since 1991." I have been there and it was amazing. Judy
