We recently had the opportunity to work on two trees, Mabel the Maple (a Silver Maple) and Sir Leaves-a-Lot (an American Elm). Also the first time we’ve worked on trees that have been named.
And why not? We attach names to creatures, and even things, that we care about. Giving our trees a name can help us recognize them as living beings. It can also help us realize that in sharing our space with them, they provide us with many benefits, and in turn, we care for them.
So get creative! We would love to come across more of examples of this.
