“I Spy the 200-year-old oak tree that the Michigan Ross School of Business is moving to make way for new construction,” writes Janet Max. As part of a $135 million expansion, it will “be moved at great expense,” notes Betsy Williams, “and at considerable risk to the tree.”
“Rumor has it that it’s going to cost half a million dollars!” exclaims Shannon Kohlitz. But as Dan Chapman points out, it “will only cost $400,000.” “I sure hope this magnificent tree survives the move,” shares Linore Latham. Lakshmi Narayanan hopes “it remains healthy enough … to benefit many more generations of students.”
