See this beautiful old burr oak? At 300 years old, it is older than the state it grows in.

So you'll be shocked to hear that this tree that is now hemmed in by development may be dying. Zoom out and check it out. According to the article, the developer was required to save the tree as a condition of getting to develop the property. But now, if it dies, do they have to undevelop the property? Or do they at least have to rename the homeowners association to the Blackford Dead Oaks Homeowners Association? No, there is probably nothing that happens if this half white, half burr oak dies. Although maybe someone will plant a dogwood in that nice sunny spot that it leaves.
