Cherry Trees Return to Asia House
May 17, 2017
On a sunny afternoon, student volunteers from Asia House worked with Grounds Services to plant two Kwanzan cherry trees inside the Asia House courtyard. While the yard once boasted cherry trees, they were removed due to disease. Asia House resident and first-year Sabine Gross proposed replacing the trees, while Grounds Services Manager Dennis Greive organized the effort. Grounds Specialist Terry Kish led the afternoon planting with support from students Charles Cui, Sabine Gross, Alex Heller, Catherine Lytle, Jun Takaki, and Kara Nepomuceno. The flowering cherry trees will eventually provide shade to the outdoor living space.
