Missouri Champion Big Tree - Shingle Oak (Quercus imbricaria). 138 inches circumference (44 inch, Diameter Breast High), 114 feet height, 104 feet average crown spread. 272 American Forests Big Tree Points. Missouri Dept. of Conservation Big Tree List: http://mdc.mo.gov/forest/IandE/MOChampionTrees/index.htm

This big tree grows in the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul West Central Province cemetery adjacent to the University of Missouri - Saint Louis south campus. The sisters of this religious order founded Saint Vincent Hospital and Marillac Seminary - two important St. Louis institutions providing progressive mental health care and women's higher education throughout much of the 20th century. These institutions formed a campus that is now St. Vincent County Park and University of Missouri - St. Louis.

The tree was discovered and measured in 2009 by Pierre Laclede Honors College students during an Urban Ecology course lab.
