I was shows some photographs of a tree on the Appalachian Trail
Virgnia known as the "Keffer Oak". Impressive tree.
listed at "the largest tree on the AT", the
"largest oak on the AT" and
"the second largest oak on the AT".
Any idea how it ranks? Ever heard of it?
What kind of oak is it?

I heard about it and another large oak in NY long before I came
to each tree.
The Keffer oak is a white oak about 19'7" located at the
edge of a
pasture in southern Vir.
The Oak in NY is about 20'3" and is also a white oak. It is
beside a 2 lane paved road.
I have trail notes and photos of both trees so my numbers above
not be exact.
Each oak is a single bole for first 20' then opens to a large
The 2 trees are close to the same size and are easily the
oaks along the AT.
