I mean... you cant really be disappointed by this. It is simply a tree that owns itself. It's an interesting subject to hear about and see for yourself. Good story.

“an all american classic”
Reviewed 4 August 2012 via mobile

i thank god for the tree that owns itself. i really do. it gives me hope for america and all of humanity.

you may know of tttoi from old ripleys believe it or not cartoons in the newspaper (remember newspapers? life was so simple back then ha). so put down that smartphone, umm well after you google directions, and take a moment or two and go pay your respects. bonus: athens only remaining cobblestone road leads you rather dramatically up to the tree.

Where else can you drive on a cobblestone street and see a tree that owns itself! A truly unique piece of history in Athens.
