Where is the oak of Zaanannim?

Judges 4:11 (ESV)

11 Now Heber the Kenite had separated from the Kenites, the descendants of Hobab the father-in-law of Moses, and had pitched his tent as far away as the oak in Zaanannim, which is near Kedesh.

This oak is referred to in Joshua 19:33 as a boundary on the edge of Naphtali’s tribal allotment. Here it confirms the general location of the Kedesh (near the south end of the Sea of Galilee) under consideration at this point in the account.1
