I hope you don't mind me adding to your thread, but the moment I clicked on, I thought of Oak Alley Plantation. Just stunning.

Don't mind at all. I visited Oak Alley Plantation in Louisiana some 14 years or so ago. As I drove towards the plantation house I thought "Wow. These trees actually look older than the house!". As it turns out, the house was built after the trees. The plantation owner actually built the house there because of the trees which had been planted decades earlier. As I recall, per the preference of the mistress of the house, the oak trees were treated to not have Spanish moss, as she did not appreciate the beauty of Spanish moss.

Oddly enough, I thought the trees were more interesting than the house. They really captivated me. I remember being just a tad bit disappointed in the size and grandeur of the plantation houses. Of course it was our first stop, and you realized how Hollywood enhances our perception of plantation life. It was a real eye opener.

 

Excellent thread by the way. Refreshing.

I remember seeing them in ... 1961? ... when my sister was looking at colleges. They were beautiful,

and covered with snow.

 

I have no photos of them, but I remember the Gothic Arches of Elms that ran down the parkways

in my home town (River Forest, Ill). I remember the all-but-total lack of sunshine on the lawn in the

backyard, due to those treese. All gone, but breathtaking.
