Thomasville is also home to the largst natural stand of long-leaf pine trees in the nation. Southwest Georgia has long been noted for its great quantity and variety of game bids. Barron’s columnist, Steven M. Sears, proclaimed Thomasville as “America’s quail hunting capital.” In 2015, USA TODAY listed Thomasville as “one of nine top sporting destinations in America!”
