Felling a "historic" tree

Good neighbors gathered to fell a leaning tree at the Historic Rapides Cemetery on February 8. Thanks to those who donated their skills, equipment, time, and service to fell a dangerously leaning Southern red oak. The tree had grown from an acorn many years ago over an iron fence which surrounded a gravesite. When the tree was cut down, the fence could be seen within the stump.

Thanks to Hayes Manufacturing, Wayne's Tree Service, and Darren Green.
