The ‘big tree’ gets some tender loving care

On Oct. 22, 2013, a popular Columbia, Mo., attraction, the McBaine Bur Oak, received maintenance from professionals and community members who donated their time to care for the popular landmark. Bill Spradley of Trees, Forests and Landscapes led a team of arborists and electricians from around Missouri. Together they worked to enhance the tree’s health and longevity.
