Charter Oak

OK, so December is probably not the time to feature a little story on a tree because you really just get the trunk and branches but in front of the parsonage (shown above) is one of the direct decedent seedlings from the original Charter Oak in Hartford.  YAY Orange, we kept ours alive.

A few months ago a man was out in front and he asked if he could step on the property to take a photo. Well we got to talking and he is doing a project on whatever happened to all of the seedlings.  If you go to You Tube and search for Charter Oak Project you'll see his work.  Although, I don't see Orange there yet.
