At the northwest corner of Belknap Hall and just north of the Mary Lyon’s main entrance we have Katsuratrees {Cercidiphyllum japonicum} in beautiful shades of yellow. In years past an earlier frost would often disfigure this tree’s fall color but this year it is magnificent. The specimen at Mary Lyons is multi-stem; a common way this tree is grown, the tree at Belknap was grown single stem from a bare root seedling in our nursery by Mr. Sweedler.
