Cathedral Pine

A loblolly pine tree that may have stood witness to as
many as two centuries' worth of history has been discovered in Oconee County. Measurements taken
by the Georgia Forestry Commission show the tree located on Hale Road has a 164-inch circumference
and is approximately 143-feet tall.

According to the owner of the land on which the
tree is located, the mammoth pine was nicknamed
the "Cathedral Pine" because in the winter its crown
looks like a church steeple.
