Have you been wondering what Tyler has planned for the Cedar of Lebanon site after the tree is removed? While plans are still being finalized, Tyler is excited to have the opportunity to reinterpret this area and possibly create another access point from the Barn into what we call the “Old Arb.” Tyler is hoping to be able to raise the funds needed to build a stairway and landing similar to the Fruit Vault stairs that were completed in 2020. Plantings will be in the style of those in the Barn Garden, for continuity around the spaces used during our weddings and special events.
We expect the tree-work will happen in late November and December – watch for notices about the barn area and limitations during that timeframe! Wood from the Cedar of Lebanon will be saved for interpretive purposes, much like the Osage Orange tree that provides such an interesting sculptural shape down by our Spring House in Old Arb.
A small amount of wood will be reserved for local artists and craftspeople that have an established relationship with Tyler, and for the general public, some souvenirs from the wood will be available in the Visitor Center in 2022.
