One of the oldest Live Oak trees in St Augustine sits smack dab in the middle of the parking lot at the Howard Johnson. The Old Senator has been core tested to be no less than 600 years old.
The developer (my grandpa) Insisted it be saved. I will always be proud of the fact that he.knew how old that tree was then and wanted future generations to have the opportunity to feel it's power.
Bring your camera.
This tree is called the old senator because it's old, a little crooked and shady.
