Big Bur Oak

The Bur Oak is the mighty tree in our backyard. Native to Wisconsin, this tree is thought to be over 200 years old and could have been growing before the house was built.  The Bur Oak was listed as a recommended deciduous tree for homeowners by the Wisconsin State Horticultural Society in 1920. If you look high in this tree you will notice wire that has been added to help bear the weight of its branches.
