Therapeutic and Medicinal Qualities

This is the biggest known example of this tree on the Wirral. The tree was George Washington’s favourite and the tree he planted on his estate at Mount Vernon is now 140 ft tall. Because he wanted to spend more time with his beloved trees he declined to serve third term as president of the USA and that set a president. So if you are not a fan of certain American presidents you can thank trees for limiting their activities to two terms. There are two tulip trees in Flaybrick, but the best one is in CE11.
