Did you know that the world's largest Sassafras Tree lives in Owensboro, Kentucky? Well it does! I did do a post about a while back, but didn't have any photos of this, so I decide to do another one and include photos this time.
Yes, there is a natural wonder in Owensboro, Kentucky it's home of the world's largest Sassafras Tree.
This natural wonder is almost 300 years old and it measures over 100 feet tall with over 21 feet in circumference. It is one of the first things we came to find during our relocation and home search.
It was very interesting especially for my husband and son, as my son is an Arborist and together they have planted over 1000 trees just this year. (they did not plant sassafras though)
This natural wonder right in the heart of Owensboro, Ky is located on Fredericka Street which is one of the busiest streets and a main thoroughfare in town.
Call or email me ,Vickie McCartney, if you are coming this way, I would love to take you to see it!
It really is pretty amazing to see in person. This picture doesn't really do it justice. In the next photo I tried to capture the size of its trunk , go ahead and take a look....
Like I said, it would be much better if you could actually see it live, instead of these photos. If you are ever in Owensboro, Kentucky- be sure to look me up and give me a call. I would love to hear from you!
