Large Catalpa Tree

Looking for trees in urban parks we found this large N. Catalpa tree.  It was in a local cemetery and provided shade with benches under it.

We measured it to record its size and to watch for growth in the years to come.

Height 72'
Circumference 139"
Canopy measured 2 different ways 65' each way.
This gives the tree 227 points.

This will be the baseline of other Catalpa trees. This is the first one I have measured.

The leaf size is also unique and easily identifies this tree from a distance.

As trees age they provide shade for us to rest under. Let us also give grace and rest to others.

Isaiah 4:6 "There will be a shelter to give shade from the heat by day, and refuge and protection from the storm and the rain."

Father, thank you for the protection from the worries of life You give.
