While a Tree Grew takes young readers on a journey through time with Maryland's most famous tree, the great Wye Oak, by tracing the tree's history from when it was a seedling to its fall during a storm in 2002. While a Tree Grew gives a new generation a glimpse into this venerable Maryland icon and the 460 years of history that surrounded it.
