Boy Do We Have A Tree!

image9

The tree in front of the church, a Post Oak which urban legend once held Native Americans altered to signify the direction of the Chattahoochee River, is about to be officially dated. According to Atlanta arborist Chris Hastings, (who has been keeping up with the tree for years, and fertilizing it as needed,) informed us that John Beach of the Buckhead Heritage Society is working on a map of historic trees. Paces Ferry's tree appears on a map dated 1821. A professor from the University of Lexington plans to perform a test on the tree in March. The tree is small for its approximate age (only 39 feet in diameter,) probably because of an injury to the top of the tree by a cannonball rather than Native Americans' handiwork. We will reveal the actual age of this tree as soon as we get the word!
