A Remarkable cucumber magnolia

Tree Information
Common Name: cucumber magnolia
Scientific name: Magnolia acuminata
Category: Beautiful tree
Notes: The cucumber magnolia in Colonial Heights, VA. is truly a remarkable tree. As a child (I'm almost 60) it was such fun and an adventure to climb the tree and sit on those wide, undulating branches. Today it is cabled and protected from anyone who might want to climb or take cuttings from the tree. Through the care of the city of Colonial Heights and the Historic Registry it is a landmark. It has survived hurricanes, ice storms, and torrential rains. It is, in my opinion, a remarkable tree.
