I just found about about this Wiki and I hate to tear into an article right away so I'll post this here instead of editing the article. Atlanta does not have plenty of peach trees.  The soil in this region is horrible and most peaches in the state grow around the Macon area.  What it does have are a lot of Peachtree streets in a multitude of variations.  How come there are Peachtree streets without actual peach trees?  It is believed that a Creek Indian village was called Standing Pitch Tree (for pine sap) and the first white roads were based on the Indian trails in and out of Standing Pitch Tree.  Somehow Pitch Tree Trail became Peachtree Street (running north and south) and Peachtree Road (running to northeast).

:: Totally agreed. Someone who says there are a lot of actual peach trees in Atlanta has clearly never actually been to Atlanta. I think that part needs to be reworded. [[User:Chronos42|Chronos42]] ([[User talk:Chronos42|talk]]) 15:00, 2 February 2017 (EST)
