The Great Wye Oak
This magnificent oak tree was long recognized as the largest white oak tree in the nation. It is believed to have established its roots on the grounds of the Wye Mills estate in Talbot County as early as the 1500s. It wasn’t until June 6, 2002, when the mighty Wye Oak succumbed to time and the elements as its massive trunk collapsed during a severe thunderstorm. Weighing over 61,000 pounds, this 96 ft tall tree measured 31 feet 8 inches in circumference and had an average crown spread of 119 feet.
