President's House Elm

president-s-house-elm-2.jpg

 

This elm tree and an adjacent maple tree grew in front of the President's House at 43 Hillhouse Ave.  They were about 40 years old when they were removed as part of the renovation.  The trees were removed on July 3, 2013, the same week that Peter Salovey became the 23rd President of Yale University.  Lumber from these trees was used to make furniture in the residential quarters of the President's House.
