Holly Hall Oak

The Holly Hall Oak was a noted white oak on the grounds of Holly Hall, that was reputed to be more than 400 years old. It collapsed of old age and sheer size on 26 April 2009. The tree was threatened by the construction of a shopping center in the 1970s, but was saved by popular outcry. It had a circumference of 21.92 feet (6.68 m), height of 58 feet (18 m) and a spread of 78 feet (24 m) when it was last measured in 2008.

Holly Hall was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976.
