    I really enjoyed this story since I have learned that I am related to the Hagenbuch family.

    Sadly, the tree died that first summer (was not cared for by the District). A new one was replanted the next spring. Again, it was not cared for as it should and died within a year. Maybe we should plant a new one??

    I believe I shall replace the Sweet Gum tree I had to remove (because of disease) with a
    magnificent Beech Tree !

    This makes me very happy to hear what our name means. I have worked in the Vegetation Management profession for the last 20 years. And I have degree in Forestry from Penn State. To know my name means, “An Enclosure of Beech Trees” really is fitting considering my love of the outdoors and forestry in general.

      Hi Todd. Glad to have you on the site, and that’s a great connection between work and name 🙂 My dad, Mark Hagenbuch, tells me that you’re my second cousin. Keep in touch!

    Just landed in your post. What a great story. I am a Hagenbuch on my father’s side. My grandfather was Andrew Pierce Hagenbuch, born in Bloomsburg PA, and settled as an adult in Pottstown. 23&me shows that my lineage is Switzerland and Germany. I’m 72 now.
