Working To Save A Special Tree

Posted: Updated:

We've lost a lot of big trees in this storm, but there is one tree Oklahomans just aren't willing to let go. Volunteers are braving the ice to save the Survivor's Tree.

Twelve years ago, it withstood the bombing at the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. Now, people are doing what they can to protect the tree. They're willing to get peppered in the face by falling ice, if it means taking that weight off the tree.

"All we're doing is just trying to get those lower branches to lift up. If it means coming out at 3 o'clock in the morning in an ice storm to kind of do what we can to make sure this tree is going to be around for a long, long time, then that's what we're going to do," said Mark Bays with the Oklahoma Department of Forestry.
