Located on a busy street corner in Eufaula, Alabama stands a tree that grows upon its own land. You may ask, how can a tree own itself?


Defined by its location at an intersection in Eufaula, Alabama, the “Tree that Owns Itself” has stood at the site since April 19, 1961. Originally there was a historic oak tree that was at the same spot. The initial tree had stood over over 200 years and it fell during a wind storm just days before this tree was planted at the site.

In 1936, the city of Eufaula granted the original tree the deed to the land where it stood. Officials stated that “Only God Can Make a Tree” and dedicated a plaque in its honor.

How to Visit

The Tree that Owns Itself is located at 512 Cotton Avenue, Eufaula, Alabama. Located at the corner of Highland and Cotton Avenue.

It is free to visit and open all hours of the day. There is no parking lot directly made for access to the tree so you may need to walk to reach the site.
