From Question and Answer Forums: What are others saying about this plant?
Believe old specimen on corner of Howell Whitfield in Clifton. Loved by neighborhood children this time of year when they gather its beautiful chestnuts as treasures. I also gather a few to share with my clueless preschoolers in Mt. Healthy. They also love the look and feel of them...
