I gave a lot of books away for Christmas and it’s been fun to hear from friends who commented on the one I wrote. I appreciated the nice message this morning from mdoodle who said Blue Ridge Reunion was a “big hit” with her sister-in-law. My sister, Miriam, gave me a great book on the most remarkable trees of Virginia. It’s a beautiful coffee table book with stunning photographs and delightful essays.
I’d love to chronicle the most remarkable trees of North Carolina. Any suggestions? Right off the bat I think of the bald cypress trees along the Black River along the Pender/Bladen County line. They’re believed to be the oldest trees east of the Rockies. You’ve also got the 400 year old trees in the Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest in the mountains. UNC Chapel Hill boasts the Davie Poplar and some ancient oaks on campus. Please help me with this and also comment on your gifts.
