Comments:The house was built in 1949. An arborist recently pruned off dead branches from this large, old Redbud. Despite some hollow spots, the tree crown is healthy. Redbud flowers are edible and can grow on tree bark. Seeds are a legume edible if harvested early enough. The property and tree could have been part of the historic Farm property.
