Re: “Arkansas's moon trees

Each state was given moon trees based on their congressional districts back in 1976. Arkansas was given the pine since it is our state tree and only two survive today in the locations you mentioned, Ft. Smith Courthouse and Historic Washington State Park. The one at the park is the largest.

It was quite an interesting project and I had talked to the experiment designer back in the 90s about the project. At the time, I was working on the beginning of the Arkansas Famous and Historic Tree Program and working on nominations for various trees.

The Washington tree is in one of our state parks. Both of the surviving trees are registered as state historic trees and can be found on the website: http://www.arhistorictrees.org and referred to as "Apollo 14 Mission Moon Pine @ Washington" (Historic Tree #5, 1997) and "Apollo 14 Mission Moon Pine @ Ft. Smith" (Historic Tree #26, 2004).
