The Yellowwood Tree

The Yellowwood tree was the fifth tree we observed on the Tree walk at the Botanical Gardens of Asheville on May 17th. This tree lives in the Sunshine meadow sort of near the gazebo.

Check out the other Yellowwood photos by clicking on the name of the tree in the Right sidebar.  This tree is the last one on the list.

The Yellowwood tree was fully leafted out in new spring/summer leaves when my daughter and I were there on June 1st.  We measured the tree for the Asheville Tree map and found our tape measure showed that three trunks all emerged from the base.  At 4 1/2 feet from the earth, we had three trunk measurements of 55 inches, 44 inches, and 37 inches.  I will be posting this info on the website for the Asheville Tree Map.

Please go to the Asheville Tree Map and add some trees yourself.  You can find this website at:
