Bit by bit, the massive Southern Red Oak tree located on the Cherry Hill Farmhouse property is being removed.
The tree is being cut down because of advanced decay in its lower trunk and supporting roots, which has spread to include several large limbs on the tree’s north side that are now dead.
The tree measured 53 inches in diameter and was potentially more than a century old.
Removal of the tree will span today and tomorrow. During removal, a section of Park Avenue directly adjacent to the tree will be completely closed to parking and traffic.
