The assumption is that prior to subdivision development, this was once a farm orchard. It's a case of cutting down the trees and naming the streets after them, hence, Peachtree Avenue. I have yet to find the elusive peach. Certainly the old oaks are arranged in perfect rows and must have majestically lined a farm drive.
I so wish past and current owners had taken more interest in and valued more highly the history and antiquity that remains. These trees could be such bountiful beauties.
On a brighter note, the tomatoes are coming along splendidly. Not long now before we can sample this year's crop. I am hopeful that a variety change to beefsteak will yield tasty reward.
