from JJ's Tree

Service of Ridgeville, Ind., works at cutting down the fourth-oldest tree in Celina along Elm Street on Thursday. The 130-foot-high tree in the backyard of Lisa Allmandinger's home originally was to be uprooted and lifted over the house by crane because access to the mammoth oak was inhibited. Later it was decided to take the tree down branch

by branch using a crane. Allmandinger, a teacher at Celina City Schools, said she hated to see it go but was worried the dying tree would fall on a home. Workers removed 27,500 pounds of limbs and trunk Thursday and were scheduled to take away the last 20,000 pounds of

wood today.
