News : Cornerstone's Micum Davis helps bid adieu to South Church tree

Apr 9, 2012

Last Thursday, Portsmouth residents, business leaders, and Seacoast community members bid a fond, final farewell to the stately South Church beech tree.

While over 150 residents had signed a petition requesting that the city preserve it, church officials maintained that the 90-year-old tree's roots had begun to seriously affect the building's foundations.

Micum Davis, owner of GA Business Partner Cornerstone Tree Care, was chosen to fell the near century-old giant. Before during so, Davis delievered a heart-felt poem in honor of the tree.
