13 Sep Tree of the Year 2001: Blue Atlas Cedar (short version)
Blue Atlas Cedar on Liberty Street.
Bears like to sit high in this tree!
The tree 391 Liberty Street (a house that was moved from Beach Street) was Ashland’s 2001 Tree of the Year. Each year residents nominate favorite trees around town, the Tree Commission narrows the selection to a few, and then residents vote for their top choice. The 2001 choice was a majestic Blue Atlas Cedar. My photo through the electric wires doesn’t do it justice. I hope you will see it for yourself.
Liberty Street residents have told me of seeing a mother bear and two cubs sitting about 40 feet up in this tree!
I hope you enjoyed this brief introduction to Ashland’s 2001 Tree of the Year. I will write a comprehensive photo essay about the tree at a later date.
