A teensy bit off the beaten path, this live oak sits majestically in a field just off highway 90/I10. There's a few spots to park and marvel at the tree, which we did with great respect. Be respectful of this great giant. It's quite precious.

I would not drive out of my way to see this but if traveling through ...it is on a mile off the interstate and it would be a great little place to stretch legs and take a photo op!! Several good restaurants in area too!...More

There are a lot of huge oak trees in Texas. I think it all boils down on just how you measure the "size" of these trees as to which one is the biggest.

I saw it and its not as big as the San Bernard Oak at the San Bernard NWR. That San Bernard oak was measured wrong by the Texas Forest Service because the people who measured it were bias against it's branching above 4.5 feet.

We were driving through Columbus on our way back to the RV Park, and decided we should stop to see the Largest Live Oak in Texas. Absolutely huge, and fun to see.

This tree is called the 'Hanging Tree' and is HUGE! Live Oak trees are absolutely beautiful. Columbus, TX has hundreds of these trees. We spent a lovely day just driving around Columbus looking at the stately trees & taking pictures.

Our cousin took us by to see this magnificent old tree, it has wonderful character. Easy access with a small parking area. Privately owned but just a small fence around the tree.

The title of this review says it all. It is worth the stop. Our Garmin GPS tried to get us lost while looking for it.

This tree is amazing, recently certified as the Largest Live Oak Tree in Texas. Columubs has HUNDREDS of Majestic Live Oak Trees; a few of them are right in the middle of the streets!
