Johns Islands is one of the barrier islands surrounding Charleston, South Carolina. It’s much more rural than the other islands and is home to the Angel Oak, a 400-500-year-old Southern live oak tree known as “the oldest living thing east of the Mississippi.” It is over 65 feet tall and 28 feet in circumference. It is currently protected by the City of Charleston.
