Oak Tree Older Than Frodo Baggins on Evanston Garden Walk

According to the AOL hyperlocal media behemoth Patch, there is an oak tree in Evanston that is more than 600 years old and you can see it as part of this year's Evanston Garden Walk on June 30, 2013.

Originally the City of Evanston was only going to feature 150 year old trees on the Walk as part of Evanston's 150 year celebration, but this old oak snuck in.

Located at the home of Cook County Commissioner Larry Suffredin and his wife Gloria Callaci, this burr oak tree is more than 600 years old, which technically is older than Frodo Baggins.
