Terrace Planter

Walking south, you will pass The Terrace Planter filled with palm treesĀ on your left. These planters were designed to memorialize the site of a former lofty fig tree, which was approximately the size of the circular planters. The tree, which was estimated to be 100 years old and 80 feet high, was sickened by a hypoxylon canker, a fatal andĀ contagious fungus which affects seven varieties of ficus trees. The Planter was donated by Alyne Massey in memory of Jack C. Massey.
