Canada Goose Outlet John’s Island used to be rural; a canada goose outlet store uk farming community. Over the last 20 canada goose outlet years or so, most of the farms have disappeared and just about the entire island has been developed. I remember riding along with my Dad sometimes on Saturdays, to visit with his customers out there. (Dad sold tractors and farm equipment before he moved to Sumter). It was quiet and green and loaded with oak trees along the roads. The local farmers would tell Dad to come out and pick anything he wanted. Dad would always wait until after the 2nd or 3rd picking. We’d canada goose outlet 80 off troop out there after supper during the week and glean the fields. Come home, snap, shell and put everything in the freezer. Canada Goose Outlet

We went out to Angel Oak quite a few times. It was on land owned by a farmer Dad knew. The tree is HUGE. I’ve cheap canada goose coat got a couple of old black and white pictures of us out there. They aren’t proposing doing anything to the Angel Oak itself but they are going to destroy the buffer zone around it, along with requesting a variance to remove some smaller grand trees. There will be increased traffic, along with all the accompanying pollution. With encroaching development, there is also increasing concern for vandalism of the tree.

The thought of them building houses and a shopping center right up to where the Angel Oak stands, breaks my heart. The tree is now owned by the City of Charleston and there is a small park there. Basically, it’s just a small plot right where the tree is. I’d like to see the entire area surrounding it stay forested. Well, what little bit is left. I don’t know how this is going to turn out but I suspect that the developer will get his way. I hope that the voice of the people will be heard, though.
