A Remarkable live oak

Tree Information
Common Name: live oak
Scientific name: Quercus virginiana
Category: Old tree
Notes: This is a real large live oak in a backyard in Virginia Beach. It has been submitted as a champion tree, though it has not yet been designated as such. The tree was featured in the local Beacon supplement by Ms. Mary Reed-Barrow a couple of years ago. When the lot was redeveloped, great care was taken to preserve the tree, roots and general shape. The tree must have been there for a couple of centuries at least. It is not up to us to remove the tree for development purposes.
No picture has been submitted.
Best time to photograph: really, anytime
