We paid our respects to the old maple tree at Fountain Plaza this morning. The tree served it’s useful life on this corner of Monroe and Meridian Streets for many years and had eventually rotted from the inside.
But all is not lost! Wood from the old tree is being stored for a future project.
We are also looking forward to new beginnings. In the coming weeks, we will see this park transform into a beautiful public space. The next generation of trees will arrive later this summer and will be enjoyed for years to come.
We heard a rumor that trees grow faster and stronger if you talk to them. So, don’t forget to say a few kind words to the new Princeton Elm and Paperbark Maples after they arrive later this year.
