This documentary showcases the removal of the weeping cherry tree near the OLOA Chapel at Charlestown in 2016. It was dead. It had to go. It was only a tree but somehow it represented a part of the history of this place. The tree estimated to be 80 – 100 years old was removed on January 14. It lived beyond the normal life expectancy for weeping cherry trees.
