A holiday tradition. KERA executive producer Rob Tranchin’s Emmy Award-winning short tells the story of the imposing 145-year-old pecan tree that stands at one of the entrances to Highland Park. The video traces the tree’s history back to the cornfields that once lined Preston Trail, how it escaped destruction as a city grew around it, how it lives through the seasons and has become a beautiful landmark. Enjoy.
