Since June’s monthly theme is about the great outdoors, we’ve been looking around at trees a lot: in parks, along streets, in plazas, in yards. The topic of this article is an historic vestige of the Meridian Street mansions. The tree is a Ginkgo tree located behind the former WFYI building at 14th and Meridian, now home to Apparatus. It is approximately 50″ in diameter and likely 100-125 years old. The tree is surrounded by parking lot, and is unfortunately overshadowed by power lines and a transmission tower.
