What’s a Witness Tree?
Witness trees are living trees that have been witness to historic events. These silent historians are everywhere and can be found in some pretty unexpected places like this massive English Elm in New York City called The Dinosaur that General Washington stood under on the night of September 21, 1776 to watch while Manhattan was burned by the British Army during the American Revolution.
