RIP Our Tree

In early October, our crabapple tree, which stood tall as one of the first things you see when entering the garden, was removed. It had been suffering from a fungal disease.

The crabapple tree has been around for longer than the garden! As Catherine shared in a previous meeting, we often take our trees for granted, but with an accumulation of stressors, they eventually succumb, so we must pay attention to our trees.

Thank you to Arborpolitan for their great care in removing the tree, the Pharmers who spearheaded this effort and came out that day and Traci for sharing photos of the before and after.
