THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) –A new HD camera allows visitors to have their picture taken for free with Thomasville's famous Big Oak tree.

Many people visit the city to see the live oak tree every year at the corner of Monroe and Crawford Streets.

Now, visitors can stand beside the trunk or by the white sign at the Big Oak, call a special number, and then pose for the HD camera across the street for a free photo.

"If you can't remember the number it is on the sign so it's very easy for people to remember," Allison Wilson, Thomasville Visitors Center's information specialist explains.

After a visitor has taken a photo with the Big Oak, they can go to a website to download the image free of charge. For more information on the Big Oak HD Cam and a link to recent photos taken with the tree, click here.
