One of the park's oldest trees, and the only Shagbark Hickory, was taken down last week.  It'd been sporting the orange dot of death since last summer so we knew it was coming.  Still.

Unfortunately, the sapling Shagbark (and the Bitternut Hickory behind it) planted early last summer is a goner as well.  They are apparently very hard to transplant due to their deep tap-roots.  The good news is that Urban Forestry says the park will get a replacement Shagbark, likely next spring.  It will be smaller and younger and its tap-root therefore smaller which should increase the odds of its survival.
