Mighty Quakerbridge Oak lives in this sliver of earth between 4 lanes of traffic near Princeton, New Jersey.
It is in 4 lanes of traffic. It was poorly pruned--see the harsh cuts in the upper canopy. Even tho it hasn't leafed out yet, Dr. Conroy can tell that this tree is starting into decline.

It's still early in spring and the tree hasn't leafed out yet. See the historical marker in front of it.

Oak Tree Synergistically Balanced to Where it Lives

Tree Protector, Janet Nicoll, loves this tree and invited some of her friends, Dr. Jim and me (Basia Alexander) to provide some TLC (Tree-Loving Care) to the tree.

Lead by Dr. Jim Conroy, as a group we synergistically balanced the historic tree to help it cope with living in a tiny sliver of earth between 4 lanes of traffic. We used Tree Whispering® and Co-Existence Technologies™ processes.

George Washington and his troops followed this route, and the tree has a marker to prove it. So, the historic tree is protected–that means it can’t be cut down. The town had to build the road around it.  That’s a good thing.  Unfortunately, the historic protection does not protect it from bad pruning or the recent harsh winter.

We will be watching the tree as it leafs-out as spring progresses.
