BUTIA CAPITATA (PINDO PALM)
"This rare four headed palm, the only one of its kind known in the world, is dedicated to the people of Panama City. It was relocated from the city’s water treatment facility on May 3rd, 1997. This was made possible by: City of Panama City/Department Leisure Services International Palm Society (Gulf Coast Chapter), Robert Reinheimer (coordinator/harvester), Deep South Crane, Kurt Schmidt (fabricator), City of Panama City Utility Dept., Panama City Rentals."
THE OLD SENTRY
This heritage oak tree is estimated to be over 250 years old. It was standing during the war between the states as if a sentry standing guard over old St. Andrews Bay. (If you were to walk past this tree to the fence, you would be looking out over the bay.)
Can you just imagine the history these two old trees have seen? Especially the Old Sentry. I wonder how many Civil War soldiers sat underneath that old tree and took a nap, or ate some chow. Pretty neat if you ask me!
Have a great week everybody!
