By Jim Wallace - bio | email ALBANY, GA (WALB) - One of the oldest oak trees in Albany's Tift Park fell overnight.
City parks officials found this massive oak down Thursday morning at dawn.
Arborists say the approximately 60-foot tall oak was probably about 90-years old.
It was one of three oaks near Palmyra Road that anchored the park in its earliest days.
The tree fell across a concrete picnic table and bench.
City work crews are expected to start cleaning up the tree Monday.
