Bent Tree Tree
In Southwest Ocala, there are two subdivisions that reside side by side: Majestic Oaks and Bent Tree. They are, in fact, so close that part of one street belongs to Majestic Oaks and another part belongs to Bent Tree.
But where did the name, "Bent Tree," derive? It came from the tree pictured above which is really more majestic than it looks. It was the inspiration for the name, "Bent Tree."
Side note: At one time, we almost bought this house. The price was right, but it was in bad shape and needed some $50-75,000 worth of renovations. Unfortunately, the boys at HGTV were tied up, so we decided to pass. As you can see, however, it was nicely renovated by the folks who did finally buy it.
