Chatham Hall White Oak, Quercus alba

I attended high school at Chatham, with frequent visits to the giant oak in a far field. We had New Girl Picnic there as well as the Lantern Ceremony just before graduation. I talked the biology teacher into getting students to measure the oak, not a simple matter, and apply to the state champion tree program. It placed second largest in the state, remarkable for its thick, healthy crown. That spring, 2013, we had so much rain, the trunk split in half, under all that weight.

I’m donating this painting and proceeds from its prints to Chatham. This is where my love for trees began.
