American Elm on Campus

A very large elm tree in front of 92 Theater split apart on Saturday, September 22, during the football game with Middlebury. Although that did not alter the outcome of the game, it did make me very sad. The problem was a weak crotch, and the health of the tree worked against its continued survival. As the limbs on one side got heavier, the trunk split, and one side fell to the ground. A crew responded to campus, and relieved the dangerous situation. The rest of the tree presents a danger, because all of the weight is on one side, so the remainder of the tree will be removed this Saturday.
