You may have seen a home being carried down a road before on a semi-truck, but how about a 80-100 year-old live oak tree?

That’s what residents of Smithville, TX witnessed during filming of Terrence Malick’s “The Tree of Life” in 2008. The namesake of the film was excavated outside of the town and trucked in — all 65,000 lbs of it.

The movie, which stars Brad Pitt and Sean Penn, has something of an existential plot. During an interview for Empire magazine in 2010, Pitt said, “It’s this little tiny story of a kid growing up in the ‘50s with a mother who’s grace incarnate and a father who’s oppressive in nature. So he is negotiating his way through it, defining who he’s gonna be when he grows up. And that is juxtaposed with a little, tiny micro-story of the cosmos, from the beginning of the cosmos to the death of the cosmos. So that’s where the sci-fi – or the sci-fact – comes in.”

And it has a giant tree. Check out the video of the tree’s move (here) and planting (here).
