Perhaps it's what they call the wolf tree. Do you recall us talking about them in the past?

Wolf trees are usually surrounded by smaller trees, signifying that the tree was once the only tree in the area and that the smaller trees have grown up years after the wolf tree was established.

My guess is it has to do with keeping its location a secret. The location of the big one we have in Ohio is kept hush-hush.
