The sign that accompanies the tree says
“On Earth Day April 22, 1991, this majestic Live Oak was placed in its new home before you. This Oak and its companion at the entrance of Disney’s Port Orleans Resort Riverside each weighed 95 tons and were transplanted from a wooded locations 13 miles away. Cypress boxes 22 foot square were constructed around and beneath each Oak and after months of preparation, the transportation took three days. Ol’ Man Iland was then constructed around this Oak as you see it now.
