End of an elm


A diseased elm tree was removed from the Law Quad on Feb. 28. Campus Forester Michael Rutkofske said the tree, which was estimated at 65-70 feet tall and 100-120 years old, suffered from Dutch elm disease and the impact of nearby sidewalk construction a few years ago. It was removed because it was judged a safety hazard. This tree and a nearby one that was removed last year will be replaced at this location in the spring, Rutkofske said.
