Johns Island, South Carolina
MUCH OF SOUTH CAROLINA and North Carolina have seen a population boom in recent years, with builders putting up housing developments as quickly as possible, then moving on to the next project.

Live oaks usually grow out instead of up, but the Angel Oak has done both. In a wooded areaalong Bohicket Road, it rises 65 feet high and boasts a canopy that provides 17,000 square feetof shade.
