SURVIVOR TREE
2 SPECIAL EVENING EVENTS
The story of an American Elm in the heart of downtown Oklahoma City, the people that saved it, and the healing of a community.
April 19, 1995, Oklahoma City was the site of one of the worst terrorist attacks on American soil, killing 168 people and injuring more than 680. The blast radius spread over 16 city blocks, causing $652 mil-lion in damages.
Adjacent to the site of the attack stood an 80 year old American Elm, beloved for providing the only shade to the area. Damaged in the blast and covered in potential evidence, the tree was nearly destroyed.
Join us as Mark Bays, Urban Forestry Coordinator, Oklahoma Forestry Service, tells the story of the Survivor Tree―a story of human resilience, recovery, and the healing of a community.
Mark Bays is a graduate of Oklahoma State University, in Forest Manage-ment. He has been with Oklahoma Forestry Services for the past 18 years, and has been directly involved with Oklahoma City National Memo-rial Foundation since 1996.
