Franciscan Sisters Witness the Loss of Two of our Trees

For those who are familiar with St. Francis Convent and school, you will remember the three tall pine trees which grow near the two buildings. The first of our three trees near the west door of the school had to come down as it was dying.

We watched each branch as it came down.

But then as the tree came down we were told the second tree was infested with an insect and could live another year, but then would need to come down also.

So the Friars made the decision to take it down now also.

 

We watched with heavy hearts as each limb came down

 

Then the final notch.

 

And now there is one pine tree left.
