Narrative

This tree is very important to us because as members of the UK swim team, we walk to and from the Lancaster Aquatic Center every day. It has always been nice especially in the fall and spring to have a pleasant walk and get to enjoy the trees on our way. This tree stands out in our minds because it is directly across from the entrance to the pool and it is rather large compared to the rest of the trees in the surrounding area. This tree also stands directly next to a curb and sidewalk with its trunk taking up all the space in between. I know when I first toured the University of Kentucky campus I thought it was very pretty. Now there is more construction around campus than I would like to see. This tree stands right next to dorm construction and symbolizes beauty in the midst of chaos.
