I’m just back from our first (and I hope annual) neighborhood tree walk to choose the Cliff-Cannon Tree of the Year. And the winner is: a beautiful magnolia in the 1100 block of S Wall. The family passed around photos of the tree in full bloom and I think that helped the tree become a winner. There were 13 votes cast although walkers and cyclists joined and fell away during the walk. In order to vote a walker had to return to Cliff Park at the end of the tour. Everyone seemed very enthused about the event, so I think it will expand next year. We saw many things in our neighborhood that can’t be noticed from a car.Neighborhood walks are a great activity and trees make them enjoyable.
