It would have taken a mighty big yellow ribbon to tie around this old oak. The tree shown in Steele’s famous painting was pretty impressive when he painted it over 100 years ago. Contribute $100 to the Tree Preservation Project and receive a beautiful gicleé print on canvas of T.C. Steele’s majestic painting, The Old Oak Tree.
Funds pay for care by a certified arborist to ensure that the site’s historic trees will last far into the current century. Although this old tree fell at the end of July 2015, the site has many more historic trees that benefit from this fund, including the Lone Wolf tree, the old white oak on the slope by the House.
