Along the famous William Bartram Trail this stunning oak tree grows near the roadside in Astor, Florida.
Situated near Spaudling’s Upper Store the tree was said to have provided shade to one of America's most important naturalist/artist William Bartram. It is said that under this tree he prepared cuttings and seeds for shipment to England in 1774. For four years Bartram journeyed through the South and especially Georgia and Florida, seeking new species of plants.
The tree became one of Stephen Malkoff's favorites and its illustration by the artist is the subject of a Public Television documentary called Tree Lines: The Art of Stephen Malkoff.
