Toronto’s mightiest red oak, up in North York, wide and tall enough to impress upon you its 350-year history.  On Tuesday the April the 2nd star reported" the Star reported that agent Waleed Khaled Elsayed was giving an ultimatum or sorts to the city: Pay up or the tree gets it. If the city would not buy the property at a price Elsayed was going to name (reportedly $750,000 plus an additional 10 per cent or so in apparent “lost opportunity”), the tree would be cut down. “My feeling is nobody wants to save it,” he told my colleague Samantha Beattie. “And why should the seller suffer? They’re the one paying the bill.” 

This tree is in Deanna Sgro's riding and we want to save this tree, funds raised would assist in buying the property and turning it into a Parkette, this is a joint venture with the city of Toronto.
