Over 500 years old and if trees could talk! The Airlie Oak is profound! She is a queen in her court. She hosts Wilmington’s most prestigious parties and has graced the banks of Bradley Creeks ecosystem with a grand signature and character.


Stand amongst her branches and you yearn to near her foundation and trunk. Possibly to be amazed at her reach, shade and life she bring to her neighborhood and visitors. The grass that surrounds her is velvet-like and her gardens rich and picturesque.
