THE BIG TREE (at Goose Island)

See more pictures taken of and around the big tree here!

The Big Tree at Goose Island is the largest (and possibly the oldest) Live Oak tree in Texas (and the nation).  Since Live Oak trees have special meaning for Texans, this tree is a special treasure.  The State Parks and Historic Sites web site has more information about THE BIG TREE.

THE BIG TREE inspires poetry.  I admit I don't quite get it.
