There’s something compelling about the particular shape of this Japanese Maple. Each offshoot of the trunk, telling a different story, reaching in all directions so as to pull you in deeper and closer. And as the leaves turn to their autumn golds and fall oranges, they contrast against the bed of mossy greens, you are transported to an almost Dr. Seuss like world of mystery.
It’s such a magical scene, so much so that it’s considered one of the most photographed trees in the world as a matter of fact. People wait in line to spend some time with this nearly 5 foot tall tree!
