Listen to the story of a grapefruit tree that survived a beating from hammers and nails wielded by Bob Carter’s sons - who enthusiastically built a treehouse meant to last an eternity, but jeopardized the life of the tree. Carter shares the tale with his daughter, Carrie Wharton, as the two reminisce about family life.
