The Live Oak Society has come back to life.
Members are concerned with preserving and pruning each of the hundreds of oak trees around the city.
The city is known for its 300-plus-year-old 'Big Oak' tree, but members say other local trees must be tended as well.
Says Live Oak Society member and Thomasville Landmarks Director Brent Runyon, "Of course we've embraced the Big Oak as one of our city's symbols, but we shouldn't just look at the one Big Oak. We should look at all the oaks and other trees in Thomasville."
The Society started in the late 80s and ran until the early 90s.
During that time, members planted about 400 oak trees.
The society was recently reinvigorated after complaints that the city of Thomasville had 'inappropriately pruned' trees around main power lines.
