WHOA!

Indeed.... :D :D :D

This is a spectacular find! That one still thrives on the island is amazing, but that it is one of the twins is more incredible yet!

There's no doubt that Alex at CWAR will identify it for us, once samples are submitted.

We can press for as many details as possible regarding the identity and origin. Photographs may also assist in the final analysis by Alex and hopefully other botanists / dendrologists.

Magnificent,

Merry Christmas to us and all O.I. enthusiasts!

Since there is a living tree to examine, is it possible to obtain samples of the leaves, etc...

Is there any evidence of acorns about?

Is it possible to take measurements such that the age of the tree might be established? This is beyond my level of expertise, but is it possible to date a living tree (approximately) without examining the rings? It would be interesting to know if this was living 450+ years ago - (at least its' host...)

If this turns out to be a Beech tree or something of the kind, Oak Island will certainly be in the news again.

I will prepare a report for Alex, to include photographs and any other information that may allow them to provide us with enhanced information.
This may also be useful if we wish to forward the analysis to a reputable University Dept. of Forestry.

The possibilities and opportunities that this provides are exceptional.

Adonah,

Even if it doesn't prove anything important, it does display an unselfish desire, unprecedented in the history of the Oak Island mystery. People who wish to cooperate to solve or understand this mystery.
