  • I was at a run down mall near my home and was at the Big Lots and they had some sad looking Sycamore Trees on sale for $10.  I bought one then that week and went to volunteer day at a local nature preserve and brought the tree.  A women that was also volunteering had recently lost her mother I asked if we could plant the tree in her memory.  Her kids were there and we all did an impromptu planting and said some words about her mom.  It was quite moving.  Today that Sycamore is looking great and I think of that touch day. Her name was Margaret Martin.  1080123694.jpeg?width=300 Here is a picture from that day.  1080123702.jpeg?width=300

  • An offer came over this board for a free tree, a daughter tree of the white oak that stood at the historic Little Rock schoolhouse. State forester Neil Letson brought the tree from Arkansas, I think. Matt McCollough got the tree from him in Montgomery and brought it to Auburn. My dad, who is 81 now and long-time forest volunteer, brought it from Auburn to Jacksonville, Alabama. After a little searching by the tree commission, the tree found a very happy home along a bicycle path behind the Jacksonville Community Center. Its planting was celebrated as part of Black History Month. I heard that the historic trees nursery went out of business, so we were lucky to get one of the last ones. I would appreciate any leads on other historic trees to add to our collection of one special tree.
