Explore A South Carolina Forest With Some Giant Trees That Are Hundreds Of Years Old
South Carolina’s many forests dole out nearly endless opportunities to reconnect with nature in the Palmetto State. And the Francis Marion National Forest is no different. At more than a quarter of a million acres, this national forest was nearly destroyed more than 30 years ago when the Lowcountry was struck by the strongest hurricane to have ever made landfall on the South Carolina coast. The more than 20-foot tide from the storm wiped out most of the trees in the Francis Marion National Forest, but not all.
