Long Description:
A plaque set in the walkway in front of the memorial oak reads as follows:

The Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Oak
Born October 27th, 1858 • Died January 6th, 1919

This tree (a Scarlet Oak) was placed here by the Roosevelt National Living Memorial Association, as a living tribute to the great lover and defender of Country and Flag, and our youngest President of the United States—Theodore Roosevelt.

This spot was chosen because it was very near to the one where he dedicated the temporary monument in 1918 to the Franklin County boys who fell in the late war.
Location of the tree: Capitol Square at the Ohio Statehouse

Type of tree: Scarlet Oak
