Lexington: The Old Schoolhouse Oak

The Old Schoolhouse Oak on Military Pike in Lexington is probably about 500 years old. It’s next to an old buffalo trace.

From Tom Kimmerer at the Venerable Trees organization:

As we begin a new year working with ancient trees, we want to pay our respects to one of the most important ancient oak trees in Lexington. We were able to carefully preserve the tree during development, and today it is thriving. Here is a photographic tribute to the Old Schoolhouse Oak. I hope it has many more years, perhaps centuries, to look forward to. If you’d like to visit the tree, here is a map.

And here is the wonderful series of photos from Venerable Trees that Tom referred to.
