The Old Tree is turning 471!  Join us at the Weymouth Woods Boyd Tract: 555 East Connecticut Avenue for the annual celebration of the oldest longleaf pine in the world. Learn about the unique nature of our state tree with guided hikes and exhibits from local wildlife educators and conservation groups. Watch a live controlled burn demonstration and witness the critical role that fire plays in the longleaf forest ecosystem.  It’ll be the biggest birthday bash a tree has ever seen! Join us for live music, games, food trucks, arts and crafts vendors, live animals, and so much more-- including, of course, BIRTHDAY CAKE!

This event is FREE and open to all. Event parking will be available at 555 East Connecticut Avenue. Head to for more info.
