Oak Ridge in Boone

Oh my, what a mighty oak! And so tall, somewhat unusual in height for mountain oaks.
It even comes with its own signage!
Towering over the building that is named for the trees.
One wonders, will there always be room for these giant heritage trees?
Notice, it is within a few feet of the highway (State Farm Road). How long can it last? Where can it grow?
How many of us pass it each day and not notice?
