Signature Tree

Taltree’s logo tree is a majestic bur oak (Quercus macrocarpa) located in the prairie south of the Railway Garden. This magnificent specimen and its cohort nearby have been standing here for more than 200 years. The original native landscape around the tree was converted to crop land in the 19th century and farmed until the end of 1997. In 1998 the prairie now surrounding this tree was planted. Since that time the oak’s offspring have grown to create a bur oak grove around the majestic tree and will one day supplant it when its days are over.
