It has been standing there, rooted in that same spot. She is beautiful during any season of the year. She is a large apple tree with a massive trunk. When I spoke ten years ago to someone who was then eighty years old, he mentioned that this tree was big when he was a little boy. How old this tree is, we don't know, but we are sure she is pushing the century mark. It might not be so significant for a tree to be a century old, you might think. However, this tree was planted by someone to produce food. Food for winter. Yes, she produces apples. These apples carry the name of Bethel. An old variety. They are winter apples you can store during the winter.
When I say she is big, large, tall -- all this is true. She is so tall, when you have a 24-foot ladder, you cannot reach her upper branches. Her trunk has a circumference so large that you cannot touch your fingers if you try to put your arms around her.
