Re: Hot NOW KY Coffee Trees

A piece in a recent New Yorker magazine about street trees in 
New York City said that Kentucky Coffee trees are what the 
NYC parks department is currently pushing for city plantings.

Your mention of Kentucky reminded me to tell you about my trees.  Three 
years ago I purchased 3 Kentucky Coffee trees on eBay from a nursery in 
Kentucky.  According to their 'blurb' they had worked in conjunction with 
the KY Dept of Agriculture to bring this tree back from the brink of 
extinction.  Anyway, this year they have really taken off.  If I ever get my 
camera fixed or just buy a disposable one I'll send pictures.  I had heard 
them discussed at a tree seminar last year as being one of the most 
underutilized fantastic trees for this area.  Guess I'm just ahead of my 
time. Huh?  The foliage is just gorgeous -- kind of fern-like.
