Artist's Description

The Millennium Tree of New Jersey, USA

“Maybe the most famous tree in America is the Salem Oak, a lone survivor of the original forest, over 500 years old and ninety feet high covering more than a quarter acre of ground. It is believed John Fenwick signed a treaty with the Lenape Indians under this magnificent tree in 1675 when he bought the land for a reported sum of about 20 gallons (2 ankers) of rum, 8 knives and 3 pairs of scissors. The tree stands at the Friends Burial Ground on West Broadway.” via ~ http://www.discoversalemcounty.com/salem-nj.asp...
