Maine has some notable trees, and the Journal, of Lewiston, has been writing them up. It tells of an apple tree at Boothbay which is still in active service and 112 years old. Class day exercises at Bowdoin are held each year under an oak planted by a member of the first class of the college seventy years ago. One of the best cared for trees is an elm in the yard of Charles Parsons, of Kennebunk. It stood near his stable, and when it became necessary to enlarge the building the addition was built around the tree, and now two large branches project through the roof, and the top spreads above the stable like a gigantic plant growing in a gigantic pot.
