Santa’s Christmas Tree Forest

In 1980, Jack and Judy Ewing moved with their two daughters, Jodi and Jana, to rural Eustis, Florida. Jack had just retired as a Lieutenant Colonel and decorated pilot from the Air Force, and Judy was a registered nurse. They built a house on their 33 acre property, sent their children off to college, and decided that they wanted to do something productive with their land.
