The Angel Oak
Saw this impressive photo today and decided it deserved a blog entry rather than a small image on the right sidebar. It's a 1500-year-old live oak located on St. John's Island, South Carolina. For more information, go to this Wiki article. To get a perspective on its size and see a gallery of photos, go to the tree's home page (!) here.
If this interests you, Wiki has a list of famous trees, (hundreds of them, from all over the world, plus historical and fictional trees) from whence you can spend all day exploring.
