Fayetteville urban foresters John Scott, left, and Melissa Evans stand beneath the state's champion persimmon tree.

A championpersimmon tree growing in Fayetteville's historic Wilson Park was discovered late last year by a city parks employee, formally nominated, and then certified by the state. We visit the old growth tree.
