    I have a “child” of the Council Oaks (likely from the one that died) that was planted in my parents yard in Missouri back in 1986. I picked up the seed during one of my visits while a student at ATU. I planted 2 children from that tree (grandchildren of the council oaks) at another location about 15 years ago. Now I have a young seedling (would share a photo if I could on this site) doing very well that will be planted at the old family farm. I was curious if there had been any thought to planting a few seedlings that are descendants of these historic trees in the same park as the one that still lives. It would be a way of keeping them alive for future generations to see and appreciate.
