The Arlington Oak was an (estimated) 220-year old tree felled by the effects of Hurricane Irene in 2011. It grew on land formerly owned by Robert E. Lee and, as of 2011, part of Arlington National Cemetery. The tree is known to have influenced the selection of the burial site for members of the Kennedy family and provided shade for their graves.
