White Oak, Cumberland County, NJ Barry Caselli

Finally, I dug out the photos of this tree. I took these March 31. The tree is located all the way in the back of the old Fairfield Presbyterian Cemetery and church site, circa 1680, in Fairfield Township, Cumberland County, NJ.
This tree is clearly forest-grown and is the largest tree in the forest.
Here's how the site is set up: Next to the road is the old Methodist cemetery, and behind that is the old Presbyterian cemetery and church site, which has grown up into woods in the last 100 to 200 years. But the woods extends further behind the cemetery a short distance, to the banks of the Cohansey River. The tree is in that part of the forest that is behind the Presbyterian cemetery.
The CBH is just a hair under 12' 9", as you'll see in one of the pictures. This is one of the nicest and healthiest old white oaks I've seen. It's also the largest forest-grown oak I've ever seen.
