Parker and his tree

Parker has always loved the trees in the alley behind his house in the Back Bay. Over the past few years the trees have been chopped down. Just a few remain, including Parker’s favorite Ailanthus tree. This tree is the largest left in the alley, but it is slowly dying due to a lack of care and soil compaction from a developer. Though his relationship with the tree remains strong, he isn’t hopeful it will survive.
