Oxford’s trees offer more than shade

A tree has its own memories — its own stories. If it could share its story, the magnolia tree in front of the U.S. Federal Building on Jackson Avenue could help solve a mystery of when it was planted. (June 18, 2010, Page 1B)

      I did not read the complete article, I am just responding to what was available in the first paragraph. When I was in first grade at Oxford Grammar School 1960-61, My teacher, Mrs. Miller, introduced our play that referred to things around Oxford. One of the scenes was the magnolia trees in front of then the grammar school. The scene was local ladies begging the Union soldiers not to cut down the beautiful huge magnolia trees. I remember this very well, as I was one of the ones that stood still and silent with a “magnolia tree” sign around my neck. So, I can state that the trees where pre-Civil War times. If you already had this info, sorry I repeated it.
