Airlie Gardens is pleased to partner with Penderlea Farms to bring you an exciting new opportunity. Own your very own Live Oak tree propagated from the Historic Sister Oaks of Airlie. The Sister Oaks are two large Live Oak trees surrounding the Airlie Oak Lawn. Only 250 of these 3-gallon container trees are available for sale at $40 each.
Penderlea Farms is a 575- acre farm located in Burgaw, NC. Founded in 2019, they’ve set forth with the mission to preserve and re-populate the Historic Style Heritage Live Oaks in Southeastern, North Carolina. Penderlea prides themselves on being at the forefront of best practices in the industry. With acorns harvested from some of the oldest and most famous trees in the area, Penderlea breeds them to grow with the sprawling, majestic, flair that has become synonymous with our local scenery.
Through partnerships with Airlie Gardens and other environmental non-profits in the area, they hope to raise awareness about the importance of the Historic Live Oak in our natural landscapes. The hope is that these trees will be enjoyed for generations to come, and provide a living connection to the giant ancestors from which they descended.LEARN MORE
