On Tuesday 9/19/2023 the much beloved William Penn Oak tree toppled. We are receiving many inquiries and requests, at a time when we are also grieving the loss and are also focused on issues related to safety and damage. It will take some time for us to sort through these messages and decide how to respond. Thank you for the outpouring of love and support.
We will be announcing some commemorative events before the large trunk and stump are removed to allow the broader community to join us in celebrating the many joyous weddings and events in which this tree has participated. Please jot down your thoughts so they can be collected at some time in the near future digitally, along with photos for those interested in sharing.
