Thursday night's storm finished off the ailing oak, which began its life around the time the first European colonists settled in this region. Centuries later, the area around the tree hasn't actually changed that much. Route 662 -- itself a descendant of an ancient trail used by Native Americans -- runs next to the tree, and a steel grain tank sits across the street. But mostly, there are acres upon acres of farmland and pristine woods.
