Historic Trees in Your Back Yard!

Thomas and I discovered something very cool today. You can buy seedlings from famous historic trees. There is a nonprofit conservation organization called American Forests, and they produce seedlings you can buy for $39.95.

You can buy a Gettysburg Address Honeylocust, Edgar Allan Poe Hackberry or an Elvis Presley Southern Magnolia. I think we'll pass on a Suicide Live Oak, though. How about a Jimmy Carter Southern Magnolia, George Washington Tulip Poplar or Susan B. Anthony Sycamore?

I think it would be a lot of fun to purchase and grow one of these.

Check them out!
