Tall Oaks was a city in the United States, with a population numbering roughly 77,000.[note 1] It was the focus of a bioterrorist attack orchestrated by the National Security Adviser, Derek C. Simmons.


During a biohazardous outbreak, some 70,000 people in the area were expected by Ingrid Hannigan to have been infected, totaling at 90% of the city's population. Later on, the city was destroyed with a missile strike; this was done to, officially, prevent the C-Virus from spreading. In reality, just like Raccoon City - which succumbed to the same "Sterilization Operation" nearly fifteen years prior - this was a political decision made to prevent the recovery of information incriminating members of the US government in the outbreak.


Tall Oaks subway map

A map of the city.

The city was located around the New England (Northeast) region of the United States.[excerpt 1] It gets its name from the oak, a tree which lives in large numbers in the nearby Northeastern coastal forests along with the "Boston Ivy".

According to a subway map of the city, it is bordered on the south and west by a river.


Ivy University was located near the center of the city, and was a major educational landmark.[excerpt 2] A church is in the city's outskirts.

The city planning was well thought-out, with a wide array of stores from gun shops to cafes neatly lined out around the subway stations.[excerpt 3]


The city demonstrated a sizable subway system.
