We fought MDOT to save a 150 year old elm Tree

We organized, had Local TV coverage, the whole 9 yards, to try and save a 150 year old, majestic and very health Elm tree. It was one of the few that survived the Dutch Elm Disease of the 1950s, but it couldn't survive the Michigan Department of Transportation. It was deemed to big to live, so they replaced it with a skinny little red maple tree.
