A Remarkable laurel oak

Tree Information
Common Name: laurel oak
Scientific name: Quercus laurifolia
Category: Champion (big) tree
Notes: This is the state and national champion laurel oak, and a favorite of Miklos Lestyan, Arborist for the City of Chesapeake. The owners, John and Bonnie Haggerty, recall the day that they found a limb from the tree that had fallen through the side of their house and into their bathroom. Unfazed, they repaired the home and never condisidered removing the tree. Mr. James Carawan, who lives next door, remembers when the tree was part of his grandfather's farm.
