Details

The Lover's Oak (said to date back to the 12th century) is located at the intersection of Albany and Prince Streets in Historic Downtown Brunswick. According to local legend, Native American braves and their maidens met under the majestic spreading limbs of this enormous oak. As of 2005, the Lover’s Oak was estimated to be 900 years old. The tree’s trunk is about 13 feet in diameter and it branches into ten limbs measuring 12 to 30 inches in diameter. From the plaque at the base of the tree: 1787-1987. The National Arborist Association and The International Society of Arboriculture jointly recognize this significant tree in this bicentennial year as having lived here at the time of the signing of our constitution.
