#109 Northern Red Oak (Quercus rubra)

This tree used to stand in the backyard of an original Treasure Tree Committee chairman. Some years ago, it was the victim of a lightning strike. It was too far down the hill by the creek in the backyard to remove. Until a few years ago the skeletal remains were still really impressive, but it has since fallen.
