Tree physiologist Tom Kimmerer photographed what he calls the Schoolhouse Oak, which is on property Ball Homes is developing into a subdivision. Ball Homes hired Kimmerer to develop a conservation plan for the tree, which he thinks is between 400 and 500 years old. Since pruning away other brush and nearby trees, the bur oak dominates the skyline as Military Pike meets Harrodsburg Road. Photo by Tom Eblen | teblen@herald-leader.com
