An apple tree at 801 E. 12th steals the show as the Tree of the Season this spring.

Proud homeowner Linda Nalley, her parents, Marilyn and Sotero Ruiz and their sons have many happy memories of eating apple pies and applesauce from its ruby red fruit.

The tree is also the backdrop for picnics and prom pictures, the family said.

The North Platte Tree Board named the tree of the season on Tuesday, May 15.
