Trees of South Central Farm Doing Fine At Huntington
The trees that were recently boxed and transported to the Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens from the former site of the South Central Farm are doing fine, according to the most recent update provided by Farmlab's expert colleagues at Valley Crest Tree Company.
The fruit on a pair of banana trees were affected by late December chilly weather. The bananas have since been covered. No other problems have been reported.
The trees are being temporarily stored at the Huntington, as planning continues for a future monument, to be located elsewhere, to the trees of the South Central Farm.
At the Huntington, the trees are being safeguarded next to the Children's Garden, and not far from the Chinese Garden that is currently under construction.
