Since the tree was planted, it has been a big part of the family. Anna Gustafson’s funeral was held under the tree as well as many other anniversaries, reunions, and picnics.

This past weekend, we held a birthday party under the tree to observe it's 100th birthday. Present were Helen and Jim Palmquist (back center) and their daughter, Anna and her husband Adam, plus Otis the farm dog.
Come be part of the history!
