Very cool, old tree. Pack a lunch and eat at the nearby picnic tables.[Jenna Spesard, 12/24/2014]
The Angel Oak is a sight to see. Just make sure to get there before five, because they do lock the gate.[Haley, 07/15/2010]
Just outside of Charleston is the Angel Tree, purported to be 1,500 years old. Not too tall as oaks go, but very wide. Good place to visit and picnic.[vik, 05/27/2010]
The Angel Oak is a gorgeous, historic attraction on Johns Island, SC (near Charleston). It is in grave danger! The City of Charleston has approved development on three sides of her. This will include 600 "low end" housing units and commercial/retail space. Please help us save her!
