Incredible Oak Alley at Wormsloe Plantation, Savannah, Georgia

By January 4, 2022January 9th, 2022Trees

Wormsloe Plantation in Savannah, Georgia has one of the most impressive oak alleys anywhere in the South.  400 Southern Live Oak trees (Quercus virginiana) line a 1.5 mile long promenade leading to the Georgia’s oldest plantation. I have a long-term project to visit and photograph the grandest oak alleys in the South, and this one was high on my list.  The 800-acre plantation dates back to 1736 and some remnants of the buildings and original house still remain. Wormsloe Plantation is now a Georgia Historic Site, and indeed it has played an important part in the early history of the Georgia colony as well as being a prize for both Union and Confederate forces as Savannah changed hands during the Civil War.  The impressive avenue of live oaks dates from the mid 1800’s, making these trees nearly two hundred years old.  The trees are spectacular, especially while driving the length of the avenue.  If you like these, be sure to also see my photographs of Oak Alley Plantation and its stunning oak alley in Louisiana.  Cheers, and thanks for looking!
