A few weeks ago I profiled a Monterey Cypress from another part of Ashland.

But I neglected to highlight this Monterey Cypress, which was actually the very first “Ashland Tree of the Year.”

If you’re headed into Ashland from the north, traveling along Main Street, you’ll see this tree on your right on the front lawn of an elementary school.

A fine introduction to Ashland I would say.

PS: Going forward, I’m going to add these trees to a custom Google Map so they’re easy to find.
