Live Oaks Hit By Crashing Plane Might Not Survive


FOLEY, AL- Two massive Live Oak trees damaged during a plane crash in Foley last week might not survive the extensive damage.

The pilot escaped the burning plane with only a cut on his hand, but the oaks, which have been on the property for more than a century, are in rough shape.A certified master arborist tells News 5 the beautiful trees could be saved if treatment starts soon. Treating the trees could cost as much as $10,000. The owner of the property where the trees are located says he does not want to cut them down or bulldoze them. Adam Bond says he’ll do what it takes to bring the trees back to health.

The FAA is investigating the plane crash. The investigation could take months.
