Historic Baptist Cemetery: Big White Oak in Rockville, Maryland

Incredible crown structure

Height: 97.98 feet

I drove through downtown Rockville to measure this fantastic white oak tree growing in the Historic Baptist Cemetery. Standing under the canopy of this tree is pretty awe inspiring as trees of this size seem to be few and far between in these urban areas. Perhaps in this fast paced world, actually standing under a tree like this is not even a priority for most people, as we find ourselves enclosed in our climate controlled vehicles most of the time. I'd recommend taking a few minutes to visit this tree if you ever find yourself in downtown Rockville...
