The Linden Oak tree, which has been around since before the American Revolution, was cut down and removed Tuesday.

A county forestry crew chopped down the tree from the top down and the outside in, using chainsaws and woodchippers.

The crew had to use a crane and sky bucket to get to the top of the towering tree, which was around 100 feet tall in its prime.

A 12-foot stump remains, a reminder of the tree that died in 2022 and served as a quintessential piece of history for many members of the community. [WTOP News]
