Ocracoke has a number of impressive live oaks. They are old, massive, and gnarled, sometimes with long twisting branches that almost touch the ground. At the same time, their broad crowns present beautiful silhouettes against the moonlit sky, especially on Howard Street.

Can any of our readers tell us where this tree is located?
