Kentucky Color: Poplar Grove

By Billy Joe Fudge

This grove of Poplars (our official state tree) near Sano Road is quite majestic. It set me to thinking about all the Poplar Grove churches, cemeteries, schools and communities I've encountered over the years. Although I'm not prepared to rattle off many of them, I just know there have been several.

There are many other species of trees that tend to gather together in groups. Many of these have also inspired similar names over the years, such as, Beech Grove, Cedar Grove, Chestnut Grove, Oak Grove, et al. This phenomenon, I believe, is indicative of the close relationship our ancestors had with trees, the forest and nature as a whole.

Additionally, I have extensive experience over the last 48 years in taking folks, both young and old, on excursions in the woods. In that nearly half century, I've yet to have had a single person with a negative experience. A great majority of the individuals and or each group have articulated an intense feeling of peace and calm, while many have expressed a higher sense of spirituality while losing themselves in the experience.

The Great Wooded South is waiting for you. A walk in the woods might be just what the Doctor ordered!
