The fairy-tale Angel Oak tree in Charleston, SC, is thought to be one of the oldest living organisms east of the Mississippi River. It stands 65 feet (20m or 6 stories) tall, is 28 ft (8.5 m) in circumference, and an area of 17,000 square feet is shaded by its tentacular crown. The largest branch reaches 187 feet. It's estimated to be 400 to 500 yrs old. It was damaged by Hurricane Hugo in 1989 but recovered and continues to grow.
