San Francisco Instagrammers Say Farewell to #ThatSFTree
San Francisco mourns the loss of the iconic cypress tree atop Mt. Davidson: #thatsftree
The tree, a long-deceased cypress atop Mount Davison, San Francisco’s tallest hill, became a place for the city’s Instagram community to come together. Cypress trees are distinctive for the way they turn white after they die. The tree’s pale color and slight lean perfectly framed views of downtown San Francisco or the Sutro Tower atop Twin Peaks. Sadly, the tree came down in unusually strong winds on Sunday night. Many traveled to tree last evening to pay respects.
