Pictorial History of Mississippi Trees

"Of all Mississippi's multitude of flowering trees the one that puts forth the greatest profusion of blossoms is the tree bearing the tung nut, from which comes the tung oil extensively used in modern paint manufacture. From an humble beginning the culture of these trees has become an industry of increasing importance. South Mississippi has the greatest yield in U.S." Photograph by Mary Ethel Dismukes
