Big grandma was chopped down by Parks Deptartment Crews before the storm

As romantic as it sounds, "1776" as a birthday for this tree is pretty unlikely. As far as I know, the Park's oldest trees date back to the mid-19th century at best, and there must be very few of those left if any. Interestingly, some giants that have come down in the past showed what's been read as trauma from the transplantations that Olmsted & Vaux did with their horse-drawn tree mover.
