Directions:
Three blocks north of the intersection of US 82 and 431. Turn west onto Highland Ave./Shorter St. and the tree is there, behind a little fence, on the right.

Tree That Owns Itself

A beautiful tree in a lovely spot!

[Joyce Schneider, 04/03/2010]

A plaque explains that the Tree That Owns Itself was granted freedom by the governor in 1936. Destroyed by a tornado in 1961, the current tree is the second to replace it, and still just as free. The more famous (?), other Tree That Owns Itself is in Athens, Georgia.
