Palmetto Tree Ornament

 

THE STORY: 

A Symbol of Hope and Strength

During the early morning hours of September 22, 1989, Hurricane Hugo ravaged South Carolina.  In the aftermath, amidst destruction of epic proportion, the magnificent trees that once graced the state were devastated.  Francis Marion National Forest lost over 90% of its trees.  Pines snapped in half and stately oaks toppled exposing their huge root systems.  Yet, as it has throughout our history, the Palmetto Tree stood.
