Earlewood Live Oak named one of Columbia’s “Treasured Trees”

Treasured TreeThis Live Oak (Quercus virginiana) located at 1011 Edgefield Street won a “Treasured Tree” award from Columbia Tree & Appearance Commission, presented by Susie Heyward of Columbia Green on Arbor Day, Dec. 2. This Live Oak was part of the 1931 Fannie C. McCants School playground. South Development Corp. saved this tree and five other grand oaks along with the old school in Earlewood as the company developed the Laurel Hill neighborhood. This Live Oak, with a 42″ trunk and branches spanning more than 50 feet, now shades the home of J. Clive Johnson, next to McCants School. South Development designed Mr. Johnson’s home to accommodate the old school yard oak. With its tree-appeal, this home was one of the first to sell in Laurel Hill.
