Angel Oak Tree Near Charleston, SC

October 13, 2012 | By | 2 Comments

April 18, 2011- Charleston, South Carolina

I just arrived in Charleston, South Carolina and was sifting through Tumblr when I noticed a photo of the Angel Oak Tree. I found out it was only 20 miles away and decided to check it out.

Driving through South Carolina is like driving through another country. The large old growth oak trees with moss, the churches everywhere, and the street signs are all different from what I am used to back home in New York.

After driving through a dirt road and past a bunch of small old houses, we entered upon the Angel Oak Tree.

Brando was running around like a little boy and I was taking photos like a mom with 3 kids. It was a beautiful sight

This is why the Angel Oak Tree is Amazing:

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 in excess of 1500 years old[citation needed], stands 65 ft (20 m) tall, measures 28 ft (8.5 m) in circumference, and shades with its crown an area of 17,000 square feet (1,600 m2). Its widest crown spread point-to-point is 180 ft, which is longer than any other live oak in the country. Its longest limb is 105 feet (32 m) in length. Read more about the Angel Oak.

    Living in SC, I have been to Charleston many times, and I am sorry to say I have never seen this tree. I always go straight to 82 Queens for the best shrimp n grits (for if you visit again) :p. Your pictures are gorgeous, so I now must go visit that tree the next time I am in Charleston.

      I had some great shrimp and grits in New Orleans but to be honest I’m not a huge fan of fried foods anymore…
      You certainly must go visit the Angel Oak tree. Its a beautiful tree! Thanks Lyndsay
