The Olmsted Brothers
Celebrated landscape architects John C. and Frederick (Jr.) Olmsted created the first countywide master plan for Metro Parks in 1925.
American chestnut used to be one of the dominate species in our forests. In the early 1900s, a fungus nearly wiped out the species. Today, much of its lumber - called wormy chestnut - is harvested from those dying trees.
