The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

Rem­nants of a 600-year-old white oak tree in New Jersey that was be­lieved to be among the old­est in the na­tion will be­come fur­ni­ture. The trunk and limbs re­moved last week from the grounds of the Bask­ing Ridge Pres­by­te­rian Church in Bernards were de­liv­ered Tues­day to Pol­laro Cus­tom Fur­ni­ture in Hill­side. Lo­cal me­dia re­ports the com­pany will trans­form the wood into al­tar ta­bles for the church and meet­ing ta­bles for Bernards town hall. The tree weighed 52,600 kilo­grams and took two days to take down.
