Charlottesville Area Tree Stewards designate the airport white oak as landmark tree.
The white oak at Charlottesville Albemarle Airport
To celebrate Arbor Day, a white oak in Charlottesville was designated as a landmark Friday.
The Charlottesville Albemarle Airport put up a fence around a 250-year-old tree in March 2013 to protect it. Some were concerned about the restricted access, especially when trying to take pictures of it, but now there are signs explaining how to get a closer view.
