Thanks for all the comments and votes.

This is another shot of a champion NJ Quercus velutina, also known as Black Oak. The tree is named the Brearley Oak, after the local Brearly farm family.

The trunk measures 20' 8" around, and it stands 98' tall and the crown is 128' across. A few of the low limbs are actually in braces, but that's to be expected when you are an estimated 270 years old!

Truly a majestic giant.

Here's my previous entry of the tree in Summer

It's about a fence, but for me it's the tree against that sky that makes this image. Congrats on the Red!

PP just a little overdone for my taste, but the effect is undeniably dramatic. Well seen.
