The North Myrtle Beach Tree City Board selected an oak tree estimated to be 75 years old as its Tree of the Month for July 2016.

 

The oak tree is located at 5103 Buck’s Bluff Drive in the Tidewater Plantation subdivision on property owned by Ed and Sue Curreri. The oak tree provides shade to almost a third of the couple’s home, which helps with cooling costs.

 

The tree has a girth of 9 feet 11 inches and is about 75 feet tall. Its canopy was altered by an ice storm two years ago and it lost numerous large branches.

 

When the couple bought the property 14 years ago, they noticed a large dead spot and hole where a large branch had broken off. The hole in the trunk was the size of a garbage bin lid and about 12 inches deep. They removed most of the dead wood, sprayed the area with bleach and, when dry, filled the hole with Sakcrete. Since then, the tree has completely covered over the hole and the Sakcrete.
