I watched a tree called a Swamp Oak, and it is 300 years old. It is in my neighbor's yard. Moses Cleveland saw this tree 200 years ago when the Ohio lands were being discovered.

It took this tree 100 years to reach maturity...The tree can live to be 900 years old...If a tree could tell stories, what stories would it tell?

This tree is so BIG, they don't know how tall it is, but the circumference is 21 feet.

Save the trees. This tree has a story all its own. They help the world and they help us live!!
