Goodbye Old Man
(Click on pic for a closer view)
This majestic Live Oak may look healthy, but according to arborists, it is very sick on the inside and is in danger of dropping large branches . It is on the perimeter of the Plaza in front of the Cathedral. There is a season for all things and for this oak it is coming to an end. It is on the dock for removal soon. One of the oldest trees in the Plaza,it is perhaps 200 years old or more.
Art In The Market suggest that a seven foot stump remain and a diorama of Martin Luther King, The St. Augustine Four, and the foot soldiers in the Civil Rights movement be commemorated in bas relief carving around the remaining column (stump). Wood carvers step forward.
