Red Oak - 114 Ash Street, Lake Zurich

Description

This red oak is a beautiful tree.  The owner reports that “one of our ancient oaks was used by Indians to mark a trade route.  They bent it when it was a sapling so that it would grow at a sharp angle”.   Lake County curator Diane Dretske has a blog post about these trees at http://lakecountyhistory.blogspot.com/2008/11/native-trail-trees.html
