Landmark Watson Mile Tree will be saved
WATSON -- A landmark tree near Watson will be spared the ax.
Kylene Olson, former mayor of Watson, received word this morning that engineers have instructed contractors to avoid cutting down the tree.
Olson has been leading the effort to save the "Watson Mile Tree'' along Minnesota Highways 7/59 near the Chippewa County community. She believes the towering cottonwood could be 150 years old.
