Angel Oak: The Beloved Tree Of South Carolina
On Johns Island just outside of Charleston, South Carolina there is a tree that is perhaps the oldest thing east of the Rocky Mountains. The actual age of the tree is up for debate. Somewhere between 500 and 1500 years old. It's incredible that the Angel Oak has survived with hurricanes, lightning, and the heat/humidity of the south. Generation after generation the Angel lives on. Check out our live podcast from the tree itself!
