Landscapers move a gumbo limbo tree in to its permanent home after lifting it from another location at the Naples Botanical Garden off of Bayshore Dr. in Naples on Monday. The tree was loaded on to a barge from its original home on Marco Island a little over a year ago and was put in a temporary location at the gardens. The tree now stands in its new location and will serve as a focal point for the future children’s garden which is part of the expansion project currently going on at the Naples Botanical Gardens which is on schedule to be completed by 2010.
