Cortese Tree Specialist made repairs to the Birthing Tree on Wednesday. The dead limb has been removed and a slice of it has been sent for testing.“Warren County is really lucky to have a tree like this,” said Cortese Tree Specialist general manager Sam Adams. “I hate that the loss of that limb has left a big hole in this side of the tree, but the tree is still sound and in good health.”Along with repairing damage to the tree, pruning it and examining the current supports and its lightening protection system, Adams removed a sliver that will be taken to Tennessee Tech arborist Dr. Douglas Airhart, who will examine the piece and estimate the tree’s approximate age.“We have to remove the broken limb to prevent further damage to the tree,” said Adams.
