100-yr-old tree killed by drought, turned into art
RICHMOND, TX (KTRK) -- A 100-year-old tree that died in last year's drought is still serving as a community landmark in Richmond.
The trunk of the tree has been carved into a 15-foot angel. The sculpture was unveiled Sunday at a yoga festival.
The festival's organizer says neighbors didn't want to see the historic tree torn down, so they collected donations to turn it into a work of art.
