This damaged copper beech tree on Wollaston Hill was turned into wood chips this week. It seems that it was a victim of one of the numerous gas leaks in the area. Tree specialists tried to save it but it was not to be. John Quincy Adams, known as the "tree-planting Mr. Adams," planted numerous copper beech trees around the city ... perhaps this was one of them?
