The Coolidge Tree, California

Among several trees to wear the Coolidge name across the country through the years, most of them were planted by either President or Grace Coolidge personally. This one, however, in Coolidge Redwood Park, is set apart from the others because it was named for the President’s father, Colonel John Coolidge. Here it sits, photographed for postcards in 1931, at 305 feet in height and 58 feet in circumference.

  1. Wonderful blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News.
    Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there!
    Many thanks
