PLACERVILLE, CALIFORNIA
JULIE WOODRUFF, 25, and her daughter Lynette, 21 months, stand under a majestic oak tree 26 feet in circumference on Dorado Canyon Road near Fair Play. Julie lived in the Dorado Canyon Road area for 17 years where she fell in love with the giant oaks she used to climb in with her twin sister Jessica. She said the girls would use "teamwork" to climb onto the big branch and have a picnic. Julie's dad, Greg Jackson, a tree expert, estimates the age of the tree to be more than 400 years.
