"I named that cherry-tree outside my bedroom window this morning. I called it Snow Queen because it was so white. Of course, it won't always be in blossom, but one can imagine that it is, can't one?"
Anne Shirley to Marilla Cuthbert[src]

The Snow Queen was a cherry tree located in the Green Gables garden and was named by Anne Shirley.

HistoryEdit

The Snow Queen was planted by Mr. Cuthbert, the father of Marilla and Matthew in late 1820s, when Green Gables was built.

When Anne Shirley returns from Redmond College after graduating, she notices that the tree is missing. Marilla Cuthbert reveals that the tree, due to internal rotting, had been blown down by a big gale in the March before Anne's return.[1]

    "What has happened to the old Snow Queen, Marilla?"
    "Oh, I knew you'd feel bad over that," said Marilla. "I felt bad myself. That tree was there ever since I was a young girl. It blew down in the big gale we had in March. It was rotten at the core."
