The Basking Ridge Historic Oak Tree Project

To celebrate the 600-year life of the oldest white oak tree in North America, the children of Bernards Township have joined together to honor the historic Basking Ridge great white oak tree in writing and in art. The Basking Ridge Historic Oak Tree Project sought students from kindergarten through high school to participate in The Historical Society of Somerset Hills “Tree Views” writing contest and the William Annin Tree Shirt Contest & Fundraiser. The essay premise was that students would write as if they were the historic oak and describe events they felt notable. Every school in Bernards Township participated including Cedar Hill School, Liberty Corner School, Mount Prospect School, Oak Street School, William Annin Middle School, Ridge High School, and the St. James Catholic Elementary School. The tree shirt contest raised over $5440 selling tee shirts while the Historical Society presented a $500 scholarship to the High School essay winner.

All of them volunteered their personal time to create the programs and worked with the children that created this most memorable collection. A thank you also to Kristin Fox, the Bernards Township Public School K-12 Social Studies Supervisor for her coordination efforts and continued support.
