Narrative

This tree is important to us because it gave a beneficial visual experience in the early spring when there are no leaves on the surrounding trees. This was a major decision in adopting it for our group because after a long winter when there are no leaves on the surrounding trees this is one of the first trees to bloom. It also can serve as a windbreak or rain break for people walking across the breezeway to get across Cooper Drive.
