A Feb. 5, 2020 CTV article (with link to video) is entitled: “‘She’s my cathedral’: 250-year-old tree may be saved with $430,000 fundraising campaign.”
The opening paragraphs read:
TORONTO — A North York’s woman’s effort to save one of the largest and oldest red oak trees in Toronto is sprouting results thanks to fundraising initiative by the city.
Resident Edith George lives in the area of Highway 401 and Weston Road and has been advocating for the heritage tree for more than a decade.
“I don’t go to churches. I go to this tree. When Australia is on fire, we have that horrific plane crash in the Ukraine, I come to this tree,” George told CTV News Toronto Wednesday. “She’s my cathedral and she gives me hope.”
