A Willow Oak to Commemorate Our Dearly Departed Dogs

The leaves of the Willow Oak (Quercus phellos) could deceive you into thinking it a type of Willow rather than an Oak. The acorns, however, give it away. It is an Oak: handsome, tough, giving–much like the canines in whose memory it has been planted. The grown tree’s 50-foot spread provides shade when the sun is strong, and shelter when Mother Nature cries. Its 70-foot height provides homes for birds and squirrels. Its spherical acorns provide nourishment for a variety of wildlife, and its autumn color provides food for the hungry spirits of poets and dreamers.
The tree was planted in May of 2003. A memorial ceremony was held mentioning some 34 dogs.
