The Butternut Tree, Juglans Cineria, oldest and largest Butternut Tree in NJ, Kinnelon, NJ

The Butternut Tree, Juglans Cineria

Morris County Historic Commission Marker
Many people may wonder why the shopping plaza, Meadtown, acquired its name and if one lives in the region long enough, the answer is as simple as the Mead farm being located there. I had never seen this sign before and I wasn't out taking pictures, so I apologize for the cell phone picture here, but this picture is of the Butternut Tree in that location which apparently is the oldest and largest known Butternut Tree in the entire State of NJ. I'm not so much offering this picture to show off the tree, but to show off the fact that somebody is actually marking this because when I turned and noted the marker, it surprised me that there was any marker there at all!
