Ancient Oak Trees Examined

Matt Largess of Largess Foresty joined Sowams Heritage Area project team member Helen Hersh Tjader pn the farm land at St. Andrew’s School in Barrington to examine an ancient white oak tree that has been growing on the property for several hundred years. Though the school was begun in 1893, the farm dates back to the 1700s and the land has never been developed since colonial days. The oak tree is on the edge of an undeveloped wooded area that contains a number of other ancient trees, some of which may also date back to colonial days.
