Three Princess trees, appearing to be of similar age, line the entrance to Perelman Park. A springtime photo of the trees in bloom is not yet available (the last photo is not of the Perelman trees) but these sisters will surely be a sight when the time is right.


(See the entry for the Princess Tree at Franklin & Marshall College for com-

ments about the value of this species' wood.)


This amazing species, native to Asia, is the tallest ornamental flowering tree in the eastern U.S.
