Narrative

This tree is important to us because it adds to the beauty of the Woodland Glen complex. Being located in-between Woodland Glen 1 and 2 this tree is a part of the main walk way that connects the Woodland Glen buildings. Even though just a sapling this tree will grow into a beautiful vibrant tree once fully grown. Being symmetrically planted with other trees of the same breed along the walk way these trees will grow up to make a stunning landscape with branches arching over top of the side walk.
