I was just reading about bayberry. It mentioned them in the NJ pine barrens, so not exactly coastal. And I think our mothers may have been twins separated at birth. As a kid we collected bags of the...

I'm curious as to whether there are any insects left that the American chestnut is/was their sole host plant. I asked a couple of ACF members, but they didn't think so. There are a few surviving...
