A little less shade at Graceland Cemetery


Kyle Hutchinson, of Troy, uses a remote controlled crane to move a large chunk of tree that his coworker, Adrian Wilson, of Troy, had just cut at Graceland Cemetery, Wednesday, March 13. The men were cutting down a massive red oak that Wilson estimated to be more than 100 years old. The tree was being cut down because it was 60 percent dead and wouldn’t be recovering. The men started the job at 8:30 a.m. and expected it to take seven hours.
