The Angel Oak

The Angel Oak Park is located on Johns Island, just outside of Charleston, SC. The Southern Live Oak tree is a historical site and focal point of one of the City of Charleston’s public parks. It is considered to be the largest Live Oak Tree east of the Mississippi estimating to be 300 to 400 years old.

Heritage Tree

The Angel Oak receives approximately 400,000 visitors each year. The tree is 65 feet high with a circumference of 25.5 feet, shading an area of 17,000 square feet. The public is allowed access seven days a week.  The park is closed holidays.  Admission to the general public is free but donations are encouraged.

As beautiful as the photos and artwork are – visiting this tree in person is an experience that can’t be captured in pictures. If you are in the area, it is worth taking time out to visit.

Hi Im Baby Angel
I was an acorn. I fell from the Original Angel Oak Tree in October 2018. They decided to germinate me and I was planted in this pot.
I am now 3 years old.

I had the opportunity to chat briefly with this talented gentleman, while watching him work. His artwork is truly beautiful, textured, amazing!
