The Culver Town Park’s historic weeping mulberry tree now has some protection from curious visitors. The “Save Our Tree” group is celebrating the completion of a fence that prevents people from getting too close to the tree and potentially getting injured.
The tree’s more than a hundred years old and is in delicate condition. The Culver Park Board required the fence to be built, or the tree would have been removed. The “Save Our Tree” group formed to raise the money to pay for the fence, raising $4,000 for construction and landscaping.
