400+ Year Old Tree that witnessed the birth of The United States in trouble

A 400+ Year Old Live Oak (the Angel Oak) located in South Carolina is in trouble by possible development.

The LIve Oak has seen the Civil War, the Birth of the United States and every Elected President of the USA.

A coalition from around the country is trying to gather enough money to protect the tree.
