New Trees for Mt. Lehman

Trying to make a lasting impression, our school planted 4 Sequoia trees in the upper field—part of Mt. Lehman’s way of finding more play space, shade and doing our part to combat global warming.  Unfortunately, the underground creek was not so beneficial to a couple of our trees; they couldn’t handle the amount of rainwater over the Winter and Spring and didn’t survive.  After some conversation with the tree suppliers, we were able to select new trees that were more water friendly…Metasequoias.  Metasequoias are cousins to the original sequoias, they can grow very tall, and they are deciduous—that means they have big leaves that come down each Fall.  And yes, our time capsule is still buried! See you in about 500 years!
