Guest post from Danny’s mom:
The Missouri state champion burr oak tree (left) stands in a field near McBaine, MO.
For more than 250 years, it has stood resilient and weathered mighty floods and sweltering droughts. During the big flood of 1993 it was in 9 feet of water for 6 weeks.
I think Danny and Amber’s Burr Oak in Decorah, IA (right) was just as impressive!
Editor’s note: the one in IA is actually more impressive.
