The Allanburg Tree is a magnificent 350 year old white oak and is visible to all those who travel here. It has been identified by members of the community as an important part of their neighbourhood.
Many associate it with their childhood; its long life has provided pleasure since the 17th century, and today, in the 21st century is still here for the appreciation of a new generation of families and children in the area.
This mammoth oak tree has been assessed by the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority to be in excellent condition. It has been listed on the Honour Roll of Ontario Trees for many years and is now the first designated natural history site in Thorold.
