Curtains for Frost’s (Alleged) ‘Window Tree’

A sugar maple tree that gave shade to poet Robert Frost has been cut down. The tree was rotting from the inside, alas.

Frost and the tree cohabited on his farm in Derry, New Hampshire from 1900-1911. The sugar maple may (or may not) have inspired one of Frost’s more ethereal poems, Tree At My Window.

The Boston Globe has a slide show.
