• This Old Tree Podcast - The Tree That Owns Itself



    Legend has it that Col. William H. Jackson of Athens, Georgia loved his old white oak tree very much. So much, that he created a deed for the tree and the land immediately surrounding it, giving ownership unto itself.  Could it be possible? Who owns a tree?

    The answers aren't always as simple as they may appear.
