Cherished Tree

  • A black cherry tree enjoys a fair alotment of sunlight despite being surrounded by a stand of white pine trees at Trues Brook Natural Area in Lebanon, N.H., on May 20, 2014. The tree is distinguished by a semicircle of logs protecting its roots and a boulder near its base. A nearby sign placed by the city of Lebanon reads in part, "We hope to keep the tree healthy...not only for its beauty but also for its supply of nectar and fruits to dozens of insect, bird and mammal species."
