City works to save maple

The tree, a maple estimated to be 70 to 80 years old, has been braced and supported before. The tree is located on the westerly end of Pritchard Park and is the largest tree in the park. According to a Mountain Xpress article wrtten by Margaret Williams on De. 2, 2002, the tree was probably planted in the 1950s or 60s. Here’s another flash-from-the-past article about trees in the park too: “Reclaiming Pritchard Park.”
