Narrative

This tree is important to Kayla and Ge'ona because they both grew up in Ohio where the months of September and October are filled with beautiful colors filling every tree. They chose this tree because of the red that was coming from the top of the tree. It reminded them of the beautiful drives through Ohio and how important trees can be to the environment as well.
