Damn, your picky!  In California, turkey.  Although, there is a 35 acre
patch of red woods on the Sabine River on the border with Louisianna. 
Doing quite well, even with the Texa heat and bugs.  My client has 3000
acres here that I manage, and my couterpart in California manages that
protion of his holdings.  Never met the othe forester, but have listened
to the woes of California property ownership long enough to appreciate
that non-land owners in California have adversly affected the use of
private property for decades.  I strenuously object to folks demanding
this, that, or the other, without taking the step of being responsible
for this, that or the other, through ownership.  They need to pay the
expense, as well as the respect.
