Ancient Poplar Tree
This ancient poplar tree sprouted before Columbus sailed
for the New World. It grew to great height and breadth.
After being struck by lightning, it decayed to form a hollow center which provided
a hiding place for possessions. A man hid his cow & calf there to save them from
Union Soldiers during the Civil War. It gave travelers shelter from the rain &
couples called it the "Loving Tree". This tree has long witnessed the weather, nature
& generations of Forsyth Co.
