Landmark Trek: The Territorial Burr Oak Tree and Its Impending End

The Landmark Commission has produced an episode covering Wisconsin’s Landmark Territorial Burr Oak tree. This episode is especially topical since the City of Whitewater is now wondering what is next for this old, historic, dying tree. Located on the corner of Main and Franklin Streets, this tree was a “Witness Tree,” when Whitewater was first surveyed in the 1800’s. Because of the tree’s impending plight, this episode was produced before releasing Part II of The Whitewater Depot. That episode will be released around the first week of October.
