Favorite Tree & Reason: My favorite tree is a really big shade tree on the west side of a house with a large low branch to climb up and sit on. I just love summer afternoon shade. Besides that, I also love Ginkgos (Ginkgo biloba) because they’re basically dinosaurs that have survived atomic blasts, and an extract from them helps our brains. What a fascinating tree!
