Help save the Berkshires' biggest tulip tree!

    The Great Barrington Historical Society is very proud of our champion tulip tree at Great Barrington Historical Society headquarters on South Main Street (The Truman Wheeler Farmstead). The massive tree (16'8" in circumference) suffered damage during the 1995 tornado and was never looked after. It now has many dead, dangerous branches.
    We are actively looking for an "arbor angel" to help underwrite some of the costs. . . but we still need financial support.
"Save-the-tulip-tree" donations may be sent to:
GBHS, P.O. Box 1106, Great Barrington MA 01230-1106

Located close to the Wheeler House (at right), the tree urgently needs pruning of many dead and dangerous branches.
