Historic tree is on the mend
MCNABB — Richard Ashdown of rural McNabb knew he was in trouble when he heard the sound of a large crack in July coming from his white oak tree in his yard. The tree, listed as one of the oldest white oak trees in the state of Illinois, had a large limb that was breaking off of its trunk.
"It happened on July 15 at 11 o'clock in the morning," said Ashdown. "I heard a couple of large crack sounds from outside and knew as I looked out that I had trouble."
The limb, which was 10 feet around and approximately 70 feet long had started cracking.
