Woodlawn Wishing Tree

Our birch tree became the Woodlawn Wishing Tree in 2015 when we heard such a wonderful thing existed and that we could ourselves create one! We started with our own simple wish: for visitors to our guest house to always feel welcome and at home. We left some blank wish tags, string, and pens out for others to write wishes down, and by the next month there were dozens of wishes tied to the tree and open to the elements and passers by for viewing.

  • I wish for my computer and phone back.
  • Get whole.
  • Free my people.
