Joyce's oak tree finally falls

After weeks of negotiation, the Joyce family's giant oak tree finally came crashing to the ground. It happened around 4:45 Wednesday afternoon. Family members left the house, because they said they could not bear to watch. The Joyce’s had been in a dispute with Wilmington International Airport after the Federal Aviation Administration mandated nearby trees be cut down because of safety concerns. The airport paid the Joyce’s more than $40,000 for the loss of their trees.

All I can say is it's about time. ILM should still get some of their money back from this family wasting so much time. I like trees as much as the next person, but these people were more than compensated for the tree and then wanted to cause a fuss and wastes people's time.
