I've broken down the history of the Yard's trees into three sections, sorted chronologically. Each represents a distinct period marked by an event that significantly affected the landscape of the Yard.

Part 1: 1900s -1950 - Elms as a link to the past; impatience and emotion replant the Yard

Part 2: 1950s - 1980s - Dutch elm disease and an uncertain future for Harvard trees

Part 3: 1990s - Present - Taking action: planting the canopy for the next century
