Fate of landmark tree expected this week
WATSON -- A Watson woman hopes to learn the fate of a landmark tree early this week.
Kylene Olson, former mayor of Watson, is attempting to save the "Watson Mile Tree'' along Minnesota Highway 7/U.S. Highway 59 near the Chippewa County community. She believes the towering cottonwood could be 150 years old.
It was slated to be felled as part of a project to build a sanitary sewer line from Watson to Montevideo.
