"A huge Valley oak has stood in Corriganville Regional Park for over 400 years. This is the story of how, on countless visits for more than twenty years, the great oak has become a cherished and prominent presence in my daily life. I have experienced the old tree as its leaves undergo seasonal changes and finally drop to cover the ground. I have watched season after season as spring flowers give way to plump acorns. Beside the imposing tree, just outside its broad canopy, vulnerable seedlings have appeared and grown into sturdy saplings." Rebecca Chamlee. The acorn included in the deluxe box has been frozen for 12 months, baked for 8 hours, and sealed.
