Oldest tree at San Diego Botanic Garden turned into work of art
The oldest tree at North County's San Diego Botanic Garden is finding new life as a work of art. The Eucalyptus cladocalyx was planted 100 years ago at the Encinitas garden. It had to be euthanized last year because it was leaning and posing a threat to visitors, officials said. Artist Erwin Young "Mitch" Mitchell IV took the 30-foot stump and transformed it into a replica of a baobab tree.
