4 trunks, no leaves

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- The four-trunked tree on 18th Street and Tremont in Cedar Falls now has no branches or leaves.

The 84-year-old tree is four trees grafted together.

After being severely damaged in the storm about a week ago, the owners discovered the tree was rotting.

Professionals told the owners the tree would probably fall down anywhere from six months to five years from now.

''It'ss very sad to be the owners now.  We're the 19th owners and we have to be the people that have this instance," owner Sarah Olsen said.

The four-trunk archway is still there.  The owners are hoping new branches will grow back.
