Honoring the Tree

File Feb 23, 3 53 58 PMAfter 75 years of providing shade to our oasis in the desert, we will have to say goodbye to this old tamarisk tree very soon.

After inspection, a certified Arborist has concluded the large tamarisk tree has reached the end of its life cycle and grown much larger due to an abundance of underground water. Now that the tree has shifted and is leaning on the stone wall away from the Grotto, we unfortunately have to remove it.  Additionally, we will be cabling several of the preserved trees together to lengthen their life cycle and strengthen the trunks so they can be enjoyed for many more years to come.
