Gettysburg Witness Tree Rehabilitation

If you recall, I recently posted about the damage to one of the few "Witness Trees" still standing in Gettysburg National Park. So named because these trees were arborial witnesses to the battle, they are a closely protected part of the park. One of them, a honey locust tree, was damaged in a storm and thought to be lost. Or so I thought...
Here is a link to the NPR discussion about the effort to rehabilitate this treasure.
