Great oak felled


Workers cut down the big oak tree at the Town Hall on Wednesday. The tree was in declining health for several years and had become a safety hazard. "We think the tree is about 90 years old,"said Steve Saracino, the town tree warden. "No one is exactly sure but a postcard of the Town Hall with 1930 vintage cars shows a small tree at this location." The town tree committee plans to replace the tree.
