there are some chestnut trees in Stone Mountain Park too.... :)

ex - I'm not going to live with you through one more fishing season!

me -There's a season?

Pastor explains icons to my son: you know like the fish symbol on the back of cars.

My son: My dad has two fish on his car and they're both trout!


That is pretty cool, I used to run into a bunch of them when I was out hunting ginseng with my Dad and Brother, none of them more than a few inches in diameter though.  There is still a lot of the wood from them around in fences, barns, furniture, etc.


I saw the remains of one that was probley 2' in diameter on the grounds of WCU behind Reynolds Hall. It is a shame that there are no more big ones. I hope the project in GA is succesful.

Yeah, from time to time someone will find a tree big enough to have nuts on it, but they don't last long.  Usually in a year or two, the blight kills them.  I have had the privelage of eating some of the nuts, though.  They are incredable!
