London: Tree-son for debate

Stanford prides itself on diversity, and maybe that is why we should respect this year’s Tree for “what it is” –it broke away from the mold of the coniferous evergreen redwood Tree of the last four years. But although we have had unique Trees in the past, such as a palm tree, I find this year’s deciduous tree to be more cringe-worthy than some of these past creations.
