Ginkgo with a History
Cousin Susan West lovingly dug up little Ginkgo trees for Prince. With great care Prince planted the two trees, one in the front of the house and the other near the horse block. These trees were babies from the Giant Ginkgo at Glen Leven, where Susan lived. When she passed she gave Glen Leven to Land Trust with several stipulations. This tree is about ten feet tall now, but the other near the horse block, well when Nephew lived in the cabin, one of his young friends, a girl,(I hate to admit this but young girls are the worst driver) ran over it with her car. It did not survive. Prince was very ANGRY and I would say that was the most upset I have ever seen him. He is the most easy going person I know but they too have a angry button. Remember these were not just any ole trees, they are living tributes from a very special cousin.
The Kitty Justice is always respect a tree because you never know what meaning it has for others.
BTW You can read the 2-18-2007 blog post about Glen Leven or just Google it for more information.
