That's a big tree! I was coming back from taking a tour, and made a small side trip here. Had to find the needed info online, but it wasn't too difficult. P.S. The link in the description was broken when I tried that.

The CO had been urging me to give OCUS a chance and so this is my first official OCUS cache and I LOVE it.  What a beautiful sight.  I took lots of photos. TFTC!

FA and I stopped by here today.  This is indeed a champion tree, what an amazing sight!  Thanks for giving us a reason to stop by and see it.

Found the location this afternoon on our way to Pineville.  This certainly is a tree of a mighty stature. Thanks for bringing us here.  AM will post our pic.

We took the scenic route finding the place by accident. Weddington is a faster route.

As soon as my kids saw the tree they said, "Wow!". It was a big hit. It was worth the trip. I bet this tree looks amazing in the fall.

3480.  WOW!  This puts to shame a cache I found, recently, in Western New York called Quercus Humongous.  SO, impressive!  

Giving this one a Recommendation.

Thanks and Happy Trails!

Thanks for bringing us to this incredible tree! We probably never would have visited here if it wasn't for the GCGC Laundry List Relay. Ivy and I set out to find a couple on the list this evening and this was the first stop after dinner at Chick-Fil-A. The clouds were beginning to look ominus as we got about a mile from GZ and the rain began as we pulled into the neighborhood. We parked the car and made a run for the tree, which ended up providing a great umbrella from the downpour. However, the though of lightning taking aim at this magestic Willow Oak prompted us to take a couple quick pictures and running back to the safety of the car. We'll have to make a trip back out here to visit on a sunny day.

Wow. What a monster of a tree. Glad they were able to keep this one around rather than just clear cutting for new houses.



Now to get the photos posted

FTF!

Couldn't talk anyone in my family into make the trip with me even though it's only a few miles from my house.  Had no idea a Champion Tree was was so close. Thanks for leading me there!
