BRC Mourns the loss of Penn Oak

BRC recently lost the White, or “Penn Oak”, that was estimated to be between 300 and 500 years old.  The 150 foot tree succumed to age and disease, damaging the nearby Spring House in its descent.  Clean up of the area will take some time, and discussion regarding plans for remainder of the tree are ongoing.

Pictured: Jim Jordan, BRC Executive Director, standing, next to the fallen tree.
