TREASURE TREES

#058 Shagbark Hickory (Carya ovata)

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 Shagbark Hickory still stands but it requires a site visit to confirm. This property also may also have Treasure Tree #041, which is a Dahoon Holly.
