These trees once covered Southern Georgia and Northern Florida wer along the NC and SC coast. They were "harvested" in the 1500-1700 to build boats

(The video above was posted in response to the Middleton Oak Video below. I suggested the tree was likely no that old, but a worthwile subject anyway.)

"I love science and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awe by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and revigorate it." by Robert M. Sapolsky
