South Carolina Champion Oak – Georgetown, South Carolina


South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Georgetown County Photos  |  South Carolina Champion Oak

The South Carolina Champion Oak is located between 513 and 515 Prince Street in Georgetown. It is registered with the American Forestry Associates as a State Champion. In 1940, the tree was estimated to be over 500 years old. At the time, it measured 23 feet in circumference. It was 120 feet tall and had a crown spread of 125 feet.

Live oak trees are called “live” because they remain green during winter months. They can be found mostly in North America, up and down the East Coast from Maryland to Florida. They can also be found in certain parts of California and Oregon, as well as along the Gulf Coast in Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi. They can even grow in the warmer regions of Asia and Europe.
