All of us at Elyse Harney Real Estate wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving with family and loved ones!
Each year our family rejoices in the tradition of a Thanksgiving Day Hike at Bartholomew’s Cobble in Sheffield, MA, where we visit our favorite Copper Beech tree. In recent years, our beloved tree has slowly eroded into the Housatonic River. With time, and perhaps without realization, this tree has become a family heirloom – a place of fond memories, laughter, and love. Our love of this tree has often reminded us of the children’s book The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein – this Copper Beech tree was our “Giving Tree”.
This year, we are especially thankful for Tom Whalen of Whalen Nursery & Jimmy Koneazny of Peerless Tree Experts, who helped us in honoring the late John Harney, Sr. by planting three new trees, including a Copper Beech, at the Harney & Sons Tea factory in Millerton, NY. These trees symbolize the never-ending love and strength of our family.
