“I planted a sapling that was 2 1/2 – 3 feet back around 1985-87. Around 30 years ago. In the photos you see me standing by it holding a YARD stick representing height it was at planting time. The roof line of the house is about 20 feet, thus this tree has grown to about 35 feet, and it grew out as well as up.” Sincerely, Mary Martin.

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.

Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

Joyce Kilmer
1886-1918
