Oak Tree (Site of the stone wall)
The road that Red traveled when he was looking for Andy's treasure was supposed to be in New England in the movie. It was actually on Pleasant Valley Rd. in Lucas, Ohio near Malabar Farm State Park. As you drive east along Pleasant Valley Rd. just past the entrance to Malabar Farm State Park, look to your left (north side of Pleasant Valley Rd.) to see the famous oak tree where Red walked along a hay field and removed stones from a rock wall where Andy kept his money.
