Huge oak at Tift Park falls

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.
