Defined by its location at an intersection in Eufaula, Alabama, the “Tree that Owns Itself” has stood at the site since April 19, 1961. Originally there was a historic oak tree that was at the same spot. The initial tree had stood over over 200 years and it fell during a wind storm just days before this tree was planted at the site.
The plaque in front of the tree reads, “Only God can make a Tree”. The city of Eufaula granted the tree the spot of land and named it the Post Oak Tree, after the death of the Walker Oak Tree.
The tree stands at 512 Cotton Avenue, Eufaula, Alabama. It is free to visit but watch for traffic as it is located on the corner.
Thanks for reading and as always, keep on truckin’!
