Daniel Island has a long history of communities living off the land. Indians used items grown or made here to trade with Spaniards and other area settlers in the surrounding lands. Later, after European settlers moved onto the island, bricks, rice, lumber, lime, cotton and indigo became popular exports.
Daniel Island has many significant oaks. Is it recognized that the Delta Post Oak (Quercus similis) which is chiefly in the lower Gulf Coast region is disjunct at a couple of sites in coastal South Carolina? One of these is on Daniel Island.
Thank you so much for sharing this very interesting bit of information! Can you tell us where the Delta Post Oak/Quercus Similis is on Daniel Island?
