Narrative

This tree is important to us because we pass it nearly every day on our way to class. It's massive size is so imposing and the hole in it resembles a battle scar not yet healed. We find it inspiring that despite evident damage, it is still standing before us. Additionally, its leafless skeleton is so interesting to us. It has a unique shape that does not fit the mold of most other trees. Overall, this tree is extremely unique and unlike the other trees that surround it.
