Imagine a tree that served the people of eastern North America for centuries, a tree that made up a quarter of the hardwood population from Maine to Mississippi. Imagine a tree that provided food that was virtually fat free, high in good proteins, cholesterol free and nutritionally similar to brown rice; a nut that was the single most important food source for a wide variety of wildlife from bears to birds. Imagine a wood that was highly rot-resistant and straight-grained, good for homes and furniture that was strong like oak but grew quickly, like pine. Imagine a tree that served our forefathers from cradle to grave.
