NJ’s Oldest Tree

This tree is generally considered the oldest living tree in NJ, pegged at over 600 years old. It is located on the grounds of a church which has a graveyard that dates back to the 1750’s. It is so big and so weak that it cobbled together with cables, allowing different sections of the trees to support other sections. There are also supports from the ground stabilizing the larger, lower hanging branches.
