Seven Farms Drive Median Trees


Seven Farms Drive is one of the main arteries through Daniel Island. Its name is a reference to the seven farms that once operated on the island – Cunningham, Scott, Barfield, Isaac, Mitchell, Pole Grove and Acme. This popular thoroughfare is also the site of a number of majestic live oaks that date back hundreds of years!

We have created adoption designation levels for each tree based on its circumference. Trees that are between 8′ and 12′ are ACORNS ($75 donation); trees between 12′ and 16′ are EVERGREENS ($100 donation); and trees 16′ and over are CENTENARIANS ($150 donation).
The minimum circumference requirement for registration with the national Live Oak Society is 8 feet.
