“At 6601 West 82nd Street, there is the biggest naked coral tree I have ever seen. It’s stunning. Instead of spreading wide, which many do, this tree is both wide and about 50 feet high. In the summer, it’s full of dense green leaves creating beautiful shade, and as the name implies, it is naked in the winter — except for the gorgeous coral colored blooms. This tree is a gem and I can tell the owners of the home have taken good care of it, keeping it pruned so it has grown so beautifully. When I walk in the neighborhood I always make a point to go by this lovely tree.”
