Narrative

The reason that we chose this tree is because Logan helped plant it when he was doing charity work for the Greenhouse LLP. We also like this tree because I originally wanted to adopt another Kentucky coffee tree on campus, but it was much larger and in a much more prominent area, so we guessed that it had already been adopted. Knowing that Logan helped plant this tree and that it is the same type of tree as I had originally planned to adopt, makes it perfect for us. One thing that I learned from adopting this tree is that the seeds are poisonous if eaten raw. the seeds from the Kentucky coffee tree used to be used as coffee substitute, but first you have to roast the seeds before you used them for coffee substitute.
