Quercus alba — White OakThe 192 year old, 84 foot tall white oak that grew here was felled on February 14, 1998 to make way for the Mark O. Hatfield Clinical Research Center. The U.S. Navy used the 14 ton, 35 foot trunk segment for repairs to the USS Constitution, the historic frigate known as "Old Ironsides," now berthed in Boston Harbor. A slab of the oak tree is on display in the Hatfield building lobby.
