Top Three Member Voted Trees

Parthenon, TN magnolia

Take a seat! Enjoy the beautiful scenery and miraculous trees at the Parthenon in Nashville, TN. As an Atlanta resident, I see Magnolias everywhere! This was the first tree I learned to identify. It is so distinct and beautiful. Whenever I travel other magnolias always catch my eye! There is something about this tree, its branches so inviting. This was the perfect spot to avoid the summer heat and relax outdoors. I estimate its approx. 35 feet tall. It's crown spread was huge as well. The perfect shade tree.
