Madrone tree on campus damaged

You may notice as you walk through Haskell Plaza that most of a beautiful madrone tree is missing. The tree was seriously damaged when struck by an unknown vehicle. Grounds specialists have removed the damaged sections, amounting to roughly 70% of the tree. The good news is that the remaining section may survive and continue to grow, but it’s too early to know yet whether it will. Let’s all hope our old friend recovers.
