This tree is awesome!! It was defiantely worth the trip to Biloxi. This tree is so old the limbs are growing out of the ground.

This tree is amazing. The tip to tip width is 155 ft. It is recovering from the damage done by Katrina. I would have given it 5 stars but the construction around the tree took a little bit away from it.

In the same area if you enter the facility at this address I found an even better tree IMO. 1170 West Railroad StreetLong Beach, MS 39560
This was advertised on a flier but for some reason I cannot find it on these travel pages.

Giant oak tree that saw many explorers. Great place for taking pics. Pick up an acorn to plant back at home.

The Oak tree was really pretty, it was bigger than I expected it to be. The lower branches drag the ground since it is so old and big. This is a wonderful opportunity to take photos. It also has a nice saying to it that all who enters the tree together will be friends for life. We enjoyed our time visiting the tree. You cannot see the tree from the road. You have to drive onto campus and you will see it. It is behind the front lawn.
