Goodbye Copper Beech

Beautiful Tree's Last Days

Beautiful Tree's Last Days

It was sad to see that this majestic copper beech on Walnut Avenue in Avon Hill had died.  Beeches are my favorite trees and it was hard not to notice this one when I was on the street recently.  Growing up, our backyard was filled with beech trees, some with initials carved on the trunks years before the neighborhood existed.  The huge copper beeches that are found in front of some of the nicest houses in Cambridge, Newton, Wellesley and other nearby towns are some of my favorite features in those neighborhoods.

So I was tickled to see the article in the Cambridge Chronicle that told of the owners and neighbors memorializing the tree.  It’s not surprising to learn that the tree had a big impact on its owners and its neighbors.  Trees can do that – even ones less impressive than this beautiful copper beech. I still remember various trees that were on the routes I walked as a child. 

Here’s the video of the owners talking about what the tree meant to them:
