Into the Forest


Author(s):
Abstract:
The Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest is 3,800 acres of forest lying in Graham County. What makes this forest unique is that it's the last virgin forest on the East Coast. The trees have never been touched by an axe and will remain so. It was dedicated in 1936 to the American soldier-poet, Joyce Kilmer, who wrote the famous poem \"Trees,\" and was later killed in World War I on July 30, 1918.
