Notes: For seven years, this tree has been viewed by my students. During my nature program, I have pointed out the trees lovely leaves, its unusual peeling bark, its interesting seeds, and its many uses for people and wildlife. Students have also played games using this tree like the "thumbless relay race" or "meet a tree." This beautiful tree has helped to inspire children to appreciate nature.
