The Big Tree

Record #:
In Davie County stands what could possible be North Carolina's largest tree. The poplar tree is over twenty-six feet around and is twice as tall as surrounding trees. It is estimated that the tree is over two-hundred years old. Difficult to find, the tree is located on a private farm. Hikers must traverse creeks and a swamp to find the old poplar.
