Revolutionary War Tree
« on: April 29, 2019, 05:23:05 PM »
Over the weekend I took my boys to the Brandywine Battlefield Historic Park. Its a small park that sits on the hills where General Washington and the American Army were defeated by the British on September 11, 1777. On the fields next to an old farmhouse is a tree that pre-dates the founding of America.

That is neat. It might be hard on a saw, probably full of musket balls.

We lost many white oak field trees in that age class in the early eighties to the gypsy moths.
