On Tuesday a majestic, thirty foot tall Gumbo Limbo tree completed its journey by barge and flat bed truck from a waterfront lot on Marco Island to the Naples Botanical Garden. The house on the lot is being replaced by a bigger one – and the tree was in the way. The Gumbo Limbo was planted by the home’s original owners – Claudia Curle and her late husband Fred. WGCU’s Valerie Alker caught up with their daughter, Chris Curle, who recalls its somewhat humble beginning.
