Old Cloverdale Tree Removed

A Montgomery neighborhood known for it's big trees is short a century old tree.

A tree that's stood tall for a least 150 years in Old Cloverdale fell vicitm to a lightning storm on July 2nd.

After the storm the State Forestry Department deemed the tree un-savable...and Monday it was cut down.

This natural landmark now leaves One Cloverdale home without  shade, but the homeowner is thankful it didn't fall her way during the storm.
