During the recent storms in the Barrington area, an 150-year-old oak tree in the backyard of the Prunskis family's home was blown over.
Now, the family has planted a new one -- grown from an acorn from the famous Tvereciaus Oak Tree in Lithuania.

The Tvereciaus Oak Tree was already more than 100 years old when the first church was built in the town of Tvereciaus in 1501.
This species is the most common oak in Lithuania. It can live up to 500 or 600 years, and some specimens have lived for more than 1,000 years.
The only other oak tree in the U.S. planted from Lithuanian Tvereciaus Oak acorns was planted last year at the Lithuanian Embassy in Washington, D.C.
