It has been purchased by a developer who wants to do a new commercial building. It would be pretty hard to build around that tree. But I agree, it is beautiful. It was one of the features that made the Minstrel patio so wonderful in the summer.

35mm photography is a job, medium format is a skill, large format is a way of life.

Sad its closing and being developed. I got married at the minstrel, under the big Sycamore. Hope the tree survives its move to the neighbors pasture.

So do I. A big tree like that though? Not so sure.

I hope they give it plenty of water and nutrients.

I have always dreamed of buying that place and turning it into my own little business. Sad to hear the lot is going to get developed... I hope the tree stays.

edit: oh.. https://thebellevue.ca/tree/
