This tree is amazing, recently certified as the Largest Live Oak Tree in Texas. Columubs has HUNDREDS of Majestic Live Oak Trees; a few of them are right in the middle of the streets!

drove by and stopped when we saw this tree. It is huge and spans almost the entire lot it is on. Easy to see from the street. Historical marker in front.

The tree is really large! And it is living. Feels like an old soul. You can tell it is old, the trunk looks like an old man that has lived a long and vibrant life. Nice photo op. The teens loved a good Instagram picture!
