Grand Old Lady Gone!

Grand old Oak

Grand old Oak

On November 30, 2017, the Art Center’s “Grand Old Lady OAK” was taken down. It as quite an event in that it took large equipment and many professional operators to handle the large tree. It was beginning to be a nuance to the Art Center and our visitors.

Vienna’s town arborist determined that although many branches were still alive (and weighed tons), the trunk had rotted to such an extent that it would fall across Pleasant Street and/or on power lines and on the Vienna Art Center, causing extensive damage to life and limb! It is estimated that the tree was over 300 years old.
