TREASURE TREES

#041 Dahoon Holly (Ilex cassine)

The owners who lived at this property during the original Treasure Tree program sold the property in 2014. By 2015, the house was razed and much of the lot cleared. It is possible that this Dahoon Holly still stands,but it requires a site visit to confirm. This property also has Treasure Tree #058, which is a Hickory Shagbark.
