Tree Blows Down on Davenport Lawn

A large fir tree on Davenport Lawn blew down across the road through campus on April 4 during a windstorm. The tree also crumpled a light pole next to it. See a Photo Gallery of the fallen tree and the maintenance crew cutting it up to haul away the next day and reopen access to the Lower School, Metters and ESAC Gyms. A count of the rings showed it was about 85 years old. Good thing it was Spring Break week and very few people were on campus!
