Outside of Houston, a small town rallied to save a local 100-year-old historic oak tree, and mounted a creative campaign to raise $200,000 in funding, that involved 5 powerful CAT tractors working in Unison to move the living tree 1500 feet, out of the way of a new road. Why does it matter. When an entire community cares that much about saving a living symbol for the future, and mounts an effort as resourceful as that of moving the Endeavor Space Shuttle through the streets of LA, it deserves our notice, and respect.

A sprawling bur oak, lively as ever, dated to 1499, visited on Friday, in the High Wine Historic District on the bluff near Bradley University, in Peoria, Illinois. 

The great old apple tree standing in front of our house is in full bloom! The apple tree is a member of the rose family, and there are more than 7,500 cultivars of the genus, a seemingly endless variety. Some of our trees have white blossoms, like the great tree, and some are pink. the apples we grow are green, yellow and red, and together make a tasty, piquant cider.
