 > On UK Campus


Living on campus, this tree is one of the first trees we see when we walk towards the gym, and it is one of the first trees that introduces you to the beautiful area that is behind the 90, in what is now a pretty big ghost town due to the dorms not being open. Looking up all of the benefits this tree gives us really makes us appreciate these trees on an entirely new level, because we never thought about all that they do for us besides brighten our day up when we see that beautiful green canopy above our heads.
