St Rees 9 St De wadde St Tree That Owns Itself Directions Write a review The Tree That Owns Itself is a white oak tree widely assumed to have legal ownership of itself and of all land within eight feet of its base Wikipedia Address South Finley Street Athens GA 30605 United States Reviews 436 Google reviews otteroftheworld My parents live in this town and the city legally can't tear the tree down to build or anything because the tree has its own legal rights and they can't do anything about it vnicent how does how does this happen how DID this happen gíraffepoliceforce I love this story because this guy in the early 1800's had so many great childhood memories of this tree and wanted to make sure it was protected no matter what So he deeded the ownership of the tree to itself and everyone just went with it Then in 1942 this intense windstorm came and knocked the tree over And people were bummed But someone had saved an acorn from the original tree so they planted that and now Son of the Tree That Owns Itself is over 50 feet tall And since this new tree is technically the offspring of the original tree it's considered to have legally inherited the plot of land it's inhabiting Two generations of trees owning land is amazing and if you don't think this is the coolest thing get right out of my face Wholesome tree Meme
