Giant maple comes down

August 26th, 2010 · 37 Comments

The congregation of the Magnolia United Church said goodbye to a giant maple tree this week.


Church leaders say the old maple was dying and becoming a safety risk. They held a prayer service around the giant tree last Sunday.


The tree parts were taken to the Meyer Wells Company in Interbay.  They are known for helping people preserve a piece of their favorite trees.  "Humans have a really strong connection to trees," said John Wells, president of Meyer Wells. "Especially if they grew up with them or have lived around them for a while."

Part of the this tree will become a maple table for the entry area at the church. Meyer Wells recently made a table and bench from a salvaged walnut tree for the Magnolia Library.

(Thanks for the pics Julie!)

KING TV also did a story on the maple tree and you can see it here.

    How old was the tree? Sad to see it go. Lots of happy memories for many people.
