Fall of an Ancient

November 4, 2019


One of Olivet’s historic oak trees, which called the campus its home for more than three centuries, has fallen.


The tree was removed Friday, Oct. 18. Provost Maria Davis, Ph.D., said she felt the tree shake the ground around 11:30 a.m. while having a meeting in Mott Academic Center. “The tree had been long dead and the Fall Break Friday was the perfect time for it to be cut down before it fell on its own and possibly hurt someone.”


It was located in the square, lining the pathway from Main Street to Mott.
