Over a hundred years ago an acorn sprouted in this spot. During its long life, the oak provided food and shelter for animals. Tree rings tell the story of a tree's life. Wide rings mean years of good growth; narrow rings may mean drought when the tree grew slowly. Start at the center of the tree and count the rings. Each ring equals one year of growth. Who do you know that was living during this tree's life?
