#019 Japanese Pagoda Tree (Styphnolobium japonicum)

This Japanese Pagoda is located right next to its sister tree (#018). It’s located in a private neighborhood park originally designed by Frederick Law Olmstead in 1911, commissioned by Edward Dilworth Latta. This tree is cabled and still wears its original Treasure Tree tag. (Thank you to Dan L. Morrill for the historical information, pulled from his piece, Dilworth’s Early History 1890-1911.)
