Bucyrus' Biggest Oak
"This is a fine example of an English Oak Tree, or in Latin terms, Quercus
Robur. It measures 20 feet in circumference and has a diameter of 7 feet. It is
growing in the side yard of my family's property in Bucyrus, Ohio. It is the
biggest tree I have ever seen and it is the largest in our surrounding area.
One fact that I learned last evening from a local historian was that the first
owners of our home had a very interesting ritual with the tree. When I a
family member died, they took the blood from their body and poured it around
the base of the tree. Now if this is true I donŐt know, but I thought it was
an interesting piece of local folklore. I hope you all like this tree as much
as I do. I have grown up around and played in and have some great personal
memories of my own.
