Tree Wrappers

Every year, on the UAF Campus, all the birch trees on the main quad get wrapped in hand-woven, tiny blankets. I suspect the tree-wrappers might be either the knitting group or an on-campus weaving class or club. Regardless of who does it, I think the wrapped trees are one of the cuter facets of the Fairbanks campus in the Winter. Winters up here range from 0 degrees to -40, and it’s heartwarming in a children’s book-esque way to think of an individual out there, making sure the trees are kept warm as well.

I was running errands for on lower campus a few days ago, and the trees looked so pretty in the sun, I couldn’t help but snap a few photos.

Happy Tuesday!
