Tree 141

Tree 141 Quercus coccinea, Scarlet Oak

See it in better days in Google Streetview

It was estimated to be about 85 years old, and 29 metres in height, and a condition rank of 5, out of a possible 10.

It had a major structural failure Sunday last (21 June2015), it it fell across Pine Terrace, which is the road leading to the Crease Clinic

 As these photographs clearly show this is probably the death of this tree, at least there is still another one beside it, but it is not as well-formed as this specimen was; hopefully now the still  remaining Scarlet oak can take advantage of this opportunity.
