Well, by golly, one is never too ol to learn something new. Remember that I asked for input on the Box Oak tree because it didn’t turn up at all in my searches? Well, maybe the whole, wide world already knew this except me, but the term Box Oak refers to any type of oak wood sawn into thinner boards to build — what else? Boxes, of course.
It makes perfect sense that terms such as this would be used because we’re right here where a sawmill used to be. Thank you, sharp-eyed reader, for educating us with your helpful comment. This just illustrates how our area is indeed full of the history and the heritage of The Woodlands, perhaps more so than any of the other villages, but I’d have to do some research to be certain of that. (Don’t want to make any rash statements here.)
