      Apparently, TR himself planted the copper beech, so it is a direct link to him and his family. Copper beeches were a signature tree of many Gold Coast estates.

        Apparently, TR himself planted the copper beech, so it is a direct link to
        him and his family. Copper beeches were a signature tree of many Gold
        Coast estates. They usually decline after a century and are irretrievably
        lost. Dr. Hendrickson, who adopted the tree and rescued it from
        annihilation, has a doctorate in forestry from Yale. The Bartlett Tree
        Expert Company, for whom Hendrickson works, donates its services to the
        Champion Tree Project International,

        http://www.championtreeproject.org

        a nonprofit group dedicated to historic botany.

        The Bartlett Tree Company has donated over $10,000 of work at Sagamore
        Hill so far. Their restoration work is priceless, however, hence the John
        A. Gable Award for Historic Excellence at Sagamore Hill.
