Long Description:
The plaque reads:
"The original Liberty Tree (1646-1775) stood in Boston, and was a gathering place for patriots during the revolution. The massive tree's dense foliage provided cover and kept these freedom loving patriots from being easily spotted by the British. In the years that followed, each colony established its own Liberty Tree. Then and now, the Liberty Tree is a symbol of freedom.

This Tulip Poplar Tree is a seedling of the last remaining Liberty Tree. It was given to North Carolina and Charlottetowne because it was one of the original thirteen colonies. This tree was dedicated here by the May 20th Society, American Forests, the Providence Forum, and Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation.
