It's just a tree

It's wood. It's old. So what? Oaks aren't endangered or anything.

It's "seen" the Civil War, Birth of the USA and every elected President? That's called anthropomorphizing a plant. In other words: sentimental BS.

I'm not against the protection campaign. If people love it enough they will manage to buy the land that it's on to prevent its destruction. If not, then it just proves that someone else (eg. a development corporation) values the land more. That's capitalism (however encumbered by regulation) in action, folks.

As for me, I'll see it as a victory either way it goes.
