It is found in the western parts of Carolina andGeorgia, but only in two or three localities. Propagated by in-arching on M. auriculata, but it requires two years to adhere, andseldom makes a vigorous plant. This tree has a straight trunk 12 or 15 inches in diameter, often withoutbranches for half its height; the branches spread widely, and ramify butsparingly; and this circumstance, Michaux observes, gives the tree a verjpeculiar air, so that it may readily be known at a distance, even in winter.
